Applications are now open for the Consortium for the Humanities in South-East England (CHASE) Comparative Literature summer school, running this year between 24-26 June 2019 following the success of last year’s inaugural event.
This summer school will offer intensive training in the principles and practices of comparative literature. Following the success of the inaugural CHASE summer school in comparative literature in June 2018, this second iteration will build on the first event while taking its intellectual focus in a new direction.
The programme is designed for humanities students working on comparative research projects who wish to broaden their knowledge of the discipline, and their use of comparative methodologies, in the light of both classical comparativism and more recent theoretical frameworks within the emerging discipline of world literature and the rise of the global South. The summer school will bring together postgraduate students working in the various fields of comparative/world literature, introducing them to leading specialists in the discipline and offering them a valuable opportunity for both intellectual training and institutional networking.
Applications are invited from postgraduate students, either currently undertaking or about to start a PhD, working in the field of comparative literature broadly defined. The summer school is fully funded by CHASE; accommodation costs and tuition fees of successful applicants will be covered.
Informal enquiries should be directed to Dr Patricia Novillo-Corvalán, Head of the Department of Comparative Literature, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Suitably qualified students should submit a brief CV and a one-page outline of their project to email@example.com by 12 April 2019.
