CfP: Commitee for the History of Electricity and Energy: fifth summer school on the history of energy, Bordeaux, 5-8 July 2022

Commitee for the History of Electricity and Energy: fifth summer school on the history of energy, Bordeaux from July 5th to 8th 2022 .

 

This year, the Commitee for the History of Electricity and Energy is running its fifth summer school on the history of energy, designed for young researchers affiliated with research institution, either in Europe or beyond.

This next summer school will be held in Bordeaux from July 5th to 8th 2022.

The summer school provides a multidisciplinary environment for doctoral and post-doctoral researchers in the humanities and social sciences having specialisms in the history of energy. It will enable them to deepen their knowledge of the field, as well as to network with established researchers and collaborate in workshops. This event aims to create links between researchers and students from different countries and different backgrounds so as to enable them to meet each other outside any disciplinary barriers.

Following a number of themed meetings (energy and empire in 2015; energy and heritage in 2017) the 2022 issue will survey the field more broadly. What are the major interests and issues explored in energy studies? Which general trends have emerged over recent years?

The summer school will be divided into a series of panels, each of which will start with a paper given by an established researcher. Participants will then present their work, and their preliminary findings, sources will be discussed. A workshop on the use of archives will stimulate reflection about the historian method. The summer school will also provide opportunities to visit key heritage sites, notably those linked with energy history.

The sessions will be held in French and English. Please note that solid skills in these two languages are necessary to be fully engaged in the sessions and visits organized during the summer school.

Finance: Cost of living expenses will be covered by the organizers. Travel expenses will be paid by the participants. However, participants who cannot finance their travel can request a grant from the organizing committee.
