The Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain and the University of Birmingham hosted an International Postgraduate Summer School on Philosophy of Education from Monday 4th -Friday 8th July 2016.
The Summer School comprises a week of intensive seminar discussions with internationally acclaimed philosophers. Seminar sessions are based on thematic readings selected and distributed in advance. Participants also have opportunities to discuss their own work in progress. Postgraduate students with backgrounds in education, philosophy or related disciplines are encouraged to apply.
Funded by the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain, successful applicants from universities throughout the world will receive a bursary to cover tuition fees, course materials and on-campus accommodation and meals for the duration of the Summer School.
Details of the 2017 Postgraduate Summer School will be available in due course.
Each year we appoint postgraduate students to provide support and to facilitate group discussions at the Summer School. You need to be enthusiastic and able to help undergraduates work in groups to explore philosophical issues. Check back in the new year for information on next year's Summer School.
