Sandbjerg Summer School

The Sandbjerg Summer School in Global History

The Sandbjerg Summer School in Global History allows PhD students to present their projects and to discuss them with peers and senior scholars in a structured, but informal setting. It provides them with an overview of global history and ensures they are familiar with recent developments in the field. The School provides a unique opportunity for participants to get to know different perspectives on global history and to network with both established scholars and peers from other countries. 

About the organisers

The Sandbjerg Summer School in Global History is organized by a network of historians from the fields of global, imperial and transnational history as well as area studies coming from six leading European research universities (Aarhus, Berne, King's College London, Oslo, Paris Cité and Tübingen). All of them are members of The Guild, an association of distinguished research-intensive universities from across Europe. Additionally, four of them are members of the Circle-U alliance that aims to foster student mobility and scholarly collaboration across the European continent.


PhD candidates are asked to prepare a paper of 4000 to 5000 words, a presentation of their research and the discussion of another project. 

To apply for the upcoming summer school, please send a short synopsis of your project of max. 1 page when signing up to Hagen Schulz-Forberg and Henriette Jaquet
