The International Social Science Summer School in Ukraine was launched in 2009 by a multi-disciplinary team wishing to create a space of exchange and networking for young scholars in the area of Soviet and post Soviet studies. The school is interdisciplinary, non-hierarchic and follows a workshop format with roundtables, field visits, local interviews and excursions within the region. Participants contribute actively to discussions. These off-site activities contribute to seminar discussions.
The school takes place in a different city of Ukraine every year: Uman (2009), Dnipropetrovsk (2010), Ostroh (2011), Zhytomyr (2012), Mykolaiv (2013), Lviv (2014) and Chernivtsy (2015).
The Summer School is open to PhD students (or students enrolled in a kandidat nauk program) and young researchers (up to six years removed from their PhD or kandidat nauk degree). The working language is English. There is no program fee.
