Programme Structure

The course will give the PhD candidates insight into and knowledge of relevant theoretical and historical literature on water management and water control. The course will also organize an excursion into the waterscape of Bergen and its surroundings to learn about how people on the Scandinavian rain coast manage their waters.

Requirements and credits

Upon acceptance, the participants will be asked to submit a short essay of 2-4 pages from their own research on a research question decided by each course leader. This will be used as the base for presenting your research to the rest of the course.

Participation at the Bergen Summer Research School will be credited under the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).

Participants are expected to write an essay (in a form of a publishable manuscript of 10-20 pages) to be submitted after the end of the summer school. This will give a total of 10 ECTS. Deadline for submission will be decided your course leader.

It is also possible to participate without producing an essay. This will give you 3 ECTS.
