In diesem Jahr wird das Promotionskolleg seine erste Summer School zum Thema "Good Work in Academia: Perspectives from Academics, Politics and Society" durchführen. Sie wird vom 28. Mai bis 01. Juni 2018 am WZB in Berlin stattfinden.

Der Call for Applications ist hier einsehbar.

In drei Schwerpunkten wird das Thema erarbeitet:

The Process of Good Academic Work

What are the standards for good academic work: Does it have to be interdisciplinary, using multiple methods, publishable in refereed academic journals? What is “good” academic work from an ethical point of view?

The Conditions of Good Academic work

Which concepts and ideas of “good work” in academia repeatedly appear in the discussion of higher education and science policy? How can “good work” be designed regarding career planning/development/support?

The Impact of Good Academic work

Which effect does (social-) scientific research have in and for the public sphere? What do practitioners understand as “good” academic work? Which forms of dialogue between academics and practitioners are possible?

Mit Workshops, Paneldiskussionen und Keynote Speakern haben Doktorand*innen Gelegenheit, sich mit diversen anderen Wissenschaftler*innen und Akteuren aus Politik und Gesellschaft zu diesem Thema auszutauschen und zu diskutieren.
