Summer School “Understanding the Middle East. The Transformation of Contentious Politics”, Torino, 29th June – 03rd July 2015
Within the context of the TOMidEast initiatives, the Department of Cultures, Politics and Society of the University of Turin, is pleased to announce the second edition of the Summer School “Understanding the Middle East” dedicated this year to the issue of the Transformation of Contentious Politics.
The profound changes that have occurred across the Middle East over the past four years have challenged the geographical and also political notion of borders and boundaries.
With regard to geographical borders, the Arab uprisings have undoubtedly helped make them more porous showing that they can be easily criss-crossed by transnational groups offering new unifying ideologies.
With respect to the political order, the revolts have produced major changes in the organization of citizens’ claims, challenging the boundaries between state and society. From this point of view, the most visible element is the demand for dignity springing from workers’ movements, trade unions, minority associations, and all sorts of other local citizens’ groups. “Street politics” has re-emerged forcefully contributing to change how politics is and should be conducted in at least some countries of the region.
Both challenges to traditional borders and boundaries have led to the emergence of new actors employing discourses and practices that are destabilising. This destabilisation can have positive effects – the introduction of the language of rights for instance in political discourse – or negative ones- the rise of sectarian violence. In any case both challenges need further examination and the second edition of the summer school “Understanding the Middle East” focuses precisely on them.
The School will provide students with a set of analytical tools through enabling them to understand and explain the complexity of the Middle East.

Lancaster Summer School in Corpus Methods for the Humanities
Lancaster Summer School in Corpus Methods for the Humanities http://ucrel.lancs.ac.uk/summerschool/humanities.php
Lancaster University, UK
14th to 17th July 2015
Call for Participation
We are pleased to announce the first Lancaster Summer School in Corpus Methods for the Humanities. This free-to-attend summer school is taught by an interdisciplinary group of Lancaster University scholars from departments including History, English and Creative Writing, Linguistics and English Language, and Computing and Communications.
Across the Arts and Humanities, a number of parallel trends are developing new methods, especially digital methods, for reading text and texts. We see this in the form of the Digital Humanities enterprise, but also in renewed interest in different forms of Distant Reading.
Thus there exists a growing need for advanced digital-methods training for Arts and Humanities researchers. Meanwhile, a set of effective tools and techniques have been developed within the discipline of Corpus Linguistics which can answer this methodological need, allowing jointly qualitative-quantitative analyses which go beyond statistical summary to a critical engagement with text and context.
The Lancaster Summer School in Corpus Methods for the Humanities has been inaugurated to help explore and extend the benefits of these approaches for researchers, particularly PhD students and other junior researchers, in arts and humanities fields.
The programme consists of a series of intensive two-hour sessions, some involving practical work, others more discussion-oriented.
Topics include: Introduction to corpus linguistics; Corpus tools and techniques; Collecting corpus data; Foundational techniques – linking quantitative results to qualitative analysis; Foundational techniques – keywords; Foundational techniques – collocation; Studying social history with corpora – prostitution in the 17th century; Using corpora in early modern Literary Studies; Spelling variation – problems, analysis and solutions; Studying conceptual history using EEBO-TCP; Exploring Shakespeare’s language with corpus techniques.
Speakers include: Alison Findlay, Stephen Pumfrey, Jonathan Culpeper, Ian Gregory, and Tony McEnery.
This is one of five co-located Lancaster Summer Schools in Interdisciplinary Digital Methods; see the website for further information:
Who can attend?
This event is aimed at junior humanities researchers – especially PhD students and postdoctoral researchers. Anyone with an interest in the analysis of large-scale textual resources – will find this summer school of interest.
How to apply
The Summer School is free to attend, but registration in advance is compulsory, as places are limited.
The deadline for registrations is Sunday 7th June 2015.
The application form is available on the event website:

The school offers an informal atmosphere in which new ideas and research directions can be shared and debated, be it in panel sessions, or over morning coffee or dinner.
The school has a very high student to faculty ratio (2:1) allowing participants to have in depth discussions about their research with established scholars in the field.
PhD students and early career researchers (no more than 3 years from PhD completion) are invited to submit proposals. We encourage submissions on any aspect of the Cold War, broadly defined.
