This year’s summer school will focus on how young scholars can not only survive but also thrive in academia. We will focus on developing tools to get the skills for a happy and successful career in but also outside of academia.

The Tensions of Europe network has established itself as an important forum and meeting point for historians of technology in Europe. In addition, the physical meetings, summer schools, and virtual conferences have been essential in facilitating international cooperation between early career scholars from different countries who are building their professional identity and academic networks.

The two-day Summer School for Early Career scholars will take place before the Tensions of Europe conference. The aim is to connect doctoral students and post-doctoral scholars to network, and to complement the main conference with content that is relevant for scholars in the early phase of their career.

  1. short abstract (300 words) describing your research interests
