Ooh, I’d have loved to go to this summer school for grad students when I was a grad student. It’s a collaboration between Georgia Tech and Sˆdertˆrns Hˆgskole just outside of Stockholm. I must keep better track of these events, I would have recommended it to an MA student or two, but the application deadline’s long past and it’s mainly for PhD students anyway.

Goal: some day be an expert at summer schools like this! Maybe organise one some day, too.

(When is one a senior academic, btw? Obviously I’m not one yet, 2 1/2 years after defending my PhD and in my early thirties. Is it full professorship that decides it? Passing forty? A combination?)

    I bet CMU’s ETC would do a summer program with you.

    I guess there are all kinds of combinations: for me taking part in organising a summer school was part of the process of becoming an academic…

    Thought of this one, but was too late as well.
