International Summer School

ISHPES supports the International Summer School for PhD students in sport history organized by Université Gustave Eiffel (France) and Université de Lausanne (Switzerland) based on the legacy of the “Copenhagen Summer School“ (held since 2003 by Gertrud Pfister), this summer school aims to promote sport history but also more broadly social and human sciences used to analyse the sport phenomena.

This course aims to provide a unique environment for PhD students who seek to develop skills around sport history, and to improve their network in the field. Lectures given by leading experts will cover specific methodological aspects and new issues in the field of sport history. Participants will also have the opportunity to present and discuss their own research in working sessions.

The summer school in 2024 will be held in Curitiba, just before the beginning of the ISHPES conference which give the opportunity to take part at both events.

Course format

The summer school host a small group of phD students which could benefit from the dedication of many international experts.
