The Dynamic Middle Ages II

The Dynamic Middle Ages II

PhD and post-doctoral training school

Moscow, Russia

7th - 10th October 2014



Following the first international doctoral and postdoctoral school on ‘The Dynamic Middle Ages’ in Moscow in 2012, the Centre for Medieval Studies and the Department of History of the National Research University Higher School of Economics (Moscow) organized second international PhD and post-doctoral training school on the same topic in Moscow from 7th to 10th  October 2014.
The second international doctoral and postdoctoral school on The Dynamic Middle Ages is a three-year programme with European partner institutions. It will be conducted in three phases, with each spaced a year apart at three different locations, as follows:       

       1) 7-10 October 2014 at the Higher School of Economics (Moscow, Russia) with a focus on “The Dynamics of European Cultures and Societies in the Middle Ages”;
2) 26-29 September 2016 at the Heinrich Heine University (Düsseldorf, Germany) with a focus on “Materiality and Production in the Middle Ages”;
3) In the summer or autumn 2017 at University of Sheffield and/or University of Leeds (Sheffield and/or Leeds, UK) with a focus on “Methods and Technics of Medieval Research”

Applications were invited from PhD students in medieval history whose research is in the fields of West, South-East and East European studies, or in that of Byzantine studies. Their dissertation projects must be focused on dynamic elements in medieval cultures and societies. It is expected that applicants commit themselves to participating in all three phases of the training school, should they be invited to the next phases by the conveners.
