Summer School: Clinton Institute Summer School 2009

The Clinton Institute Dublin offers an annual summer school, this year with participation by German Americanists.

The UCD Clinton Institute Summer School will bring together scholars and graduate students from around the world to engage in wide-ranging discussion on interdisciplinary study of the United States. The School is aimed at advanced graduate students and junior faculty in the fields of American Studies, History, Political Sciences and Literary and Cultural Studies. The programme will offer participants the opportunity to work with distinguished figures in these fields and to investigate current developments in study of the United States and its global relations. The School’s format will include daily workshop seminars and plenary lectures. Participants work with the School’s core faculty in one of four week-long seminars.

In 2009 the faculty will include Sabine Broeck (University of Bremen), Hamilton Carroll (University of Leeds), Jane Desmond (University of Illinois), Thomas Keenan (Bard College), Liam Kennedy (University College Dublin), Scott Lucas (University of Birmingham), Diana Negra (University College Dublin), Sabine Sielke (University of Bonn), Werner Sollors (Harvard University) and Robyn Wiegman (Duke University).
