The Institute of Education, the Department of History and the Institute of Art History at the University of Zurich (Switzerland) is hosting an international summer school for early-career researchers on the topic of recognition. Specifically, the summer school addresses several challenges in contemporary recognition theory, e.g. the lack of a socio-theoretical underpinning of the demand for recognition or the anchoring of recognition theory in Western liberal thinking. Early-career researchers interested in issues like international and social conflicts in liberal societies, populism and moralization, decolonization and recognition of historical injustice or recognition in the context of severe disabilities are encouraged to apply.
