Concept Analysis in the Web Environment

23-26 September 2020. Island of Capri

Capri IPSA Summer School 2020

Jointly organised by IPSA and Federico II University, the Capri IPSA Summer School Workshop is recognised as a leading program providing advanced theoretical and practical training in methodology to its participants. The 2020 edition, Concept Analysis in the Web Environment is a Joint Program with the Doctorate in Global History and Governance at the international Southern Higher School of Naples and focuses on the theoretical framework and analytical tools for developing Political Science concepts with an innovative blended formula of online and onsite teaching.

Summer School structure: Online & Onsite

The innovative workshop formula of this year’s event has already been successfully experimented in previous residential courses. It is built on the consolidated format of the annual workshop, held from 2008 to 2017 in the Ph.D. program in Political Science of the Institute of Human Sciences (SUM), then at the Scuola Normale Superiore (SNS) of Pisa.

Module 1: Online course

Participants will attend, on a self-paced mode, the online course Understanding Political Concepts, by Mauro Calise and Werner Patzelt, before the Summer School starts.

Module 2: Residential workshop

During their stay in the island of Capri, each student is invited to develop their own conceptual matrix, related to a specific concept chosen beforehand.

The format of the Summer School is an intensive and interactive workshop, therefore places are very limited and admission will be granted on a first-come first-served basis.
