NordWel Summer School 2008

State, Society & Citizen – the Multilayered Historicity of the Welfare State

Date: 21-26 August 2008
Place: Helsinki
Organisers: NCoE NordWel in cooperation with the Danish Research School for
History and Nordic Research School for Contemporary History.

Old and new perspectives on the welfare state

Welfare States has and can be studied from a number of theoretical and
methodological approaches, with various chronological perspectives and with
a focus on different empirical phenomena. As stated in the title “State,
Society & Citizen – the Multilayered Historicity of the Welfare State” our
aim is to stimulate cross-disciplinary and multi-perspective discussions on
the welfare state as a historical phenomena and concept. 

Teachers include, among others, Bo Stråth (University of Helsinki, Finland),
Janet Newman (Open University, UK), Adalbert Evers (Giessen University,
Germany), Walter Korpi (Stockholm University, Sweden), Christoph Conrad
(University of Geneva, Switzerland), Ilona Ostner (Georg-August-University,
Germany), Pauli Kettunen (University of Helsinki, Finland), Pirjo Markkola
(Åbo Akademi University, Finland) and Klaus Petersen (University of Southern
Denmark, Denmark).

The course is designed for Nordic and international PhD students and
post-doc researchers from various academic fields. We invite proposals for
papers that deal with welfare and welfare state in a broad historical
perspective. Papers can be both theoretical and empirical in their approach.
They can deal with national themes or have a comparative perspective. 

PhD students and young researchers interested in participating in the summer
school should send an abstract (½ page) of the paper to be presented at the
summer school and a short biography by email to coordinator Heidi Haggrén:

submission is 30 April, 2008.
