Call for Applications, VIU/LIVES Winter School Life Course and Vulnerabilities


This is the fifth edition of the LIVES Winter School, the first organized by Venice International University and led by the two VIU member universities: University of Lausanne and University of Padua.

During an intensive one-week program, doctoral students and young researchers will work on various fields of Life Course research through a multidisciplinary approach (Sociology, Psychology, Social Psychology, Life-span Psychology, Social Demography and Social Policies, Sociology, Social Psychology, Life-span Psychology, Social Demography and Social Policies) lead by internationally renowned experts.
In particular, the Winter School will focus on training the participants in the production of journal articles as a fundamental aspect of the academic career they are approaching: with a “learning by doing” approach, they will prepare collaborative articles going through all stages of the research process, heading towards a joint publication as a medium-term follow-up.
