Culture, Cohesion and Competitiveness: Regional Perspectives

The 2008 ERSA Congress will be jointly hosted by the Department of Civic Design at the University of Liverpool and the British and Irish Section of the Regional Science Association International.

Chosen as European Capital of Culture for 2008, Liverpool has been the focus for numerous regeneration initiatives. The City has changed dramatically in the last decade and is emerging as one of the UK's leading centres for learning, culture, entertainment, sport and endeavour. The Congress will provide an excellent opportunity to see, and reflect on, the substantial progress that has been made.

The overarching theme for the Congress will be Culture, Cohesion and Competitiveness – Regional Perspectives. This encapsulates a number of different aspects that are topical and relevant not only for Liverpool but also across the whole of Europe.

Nuffield College (Oxford Unversity, UK) - Doctoral Studentships in Sociology
dal 3 dicembre 2007 al 30 maggio 2008
Redazione, December 3, 2007

Nuffield is an internationally oriented graduate college of the University of Oxford specialising in the social sciences. It is one of the leading centres of sociology in Europe with a special expertise in the development and empirical testing of middle-range theories.

Each year Nuffield College admits up to eight graduate students who are pursuing a degree in Sociology and related disciplines (social policy, social and economic history, epidemiology, and social statistics).  The small size and specialised nature of the College enable students to work closely with each other and with the Fellows of the College in a stimulating and research‑orientated environment. All students receive an office in College, and many also reside in College.

As part of its commitment to promote excellence in social science research, the Nuffield Sociology Group offers up to two Doctoral Studentships tenable from October 2008.
