Submission of papers and posters


Each participant is expected to prepare and present a paper. The papers can be of different character such as theoretical and empirical case studies, theory discussions etc. It is a good idea to introduce your study, i.e. present the general topic for your thesis and your paper’s significance for your thesis and also emphasize the general theoretical and methodological questions that you work with. This will make it easier for the commentators and there will be less room for misunderstandings. The presentation should not take more than 15 minutes.

Paper deadline is 15 July 2012. Papers should contain no more than 9 000 words (including notes). The paper should be in the form of a *.doc or of *.pdf file and it should be send to Anniina Vainio,

All papers will be available for downloading on the NordWel’s homepage before the start of the summer school.


Each participant is expected to prepare a poster introducing his/her dissertation project. The aim of the poster is to provide other summer school participants and senior scholars with information about the dissertation by emphasizing main points. Posters will be presented during the summer school.

  • title
  • abstract
  • introduction
  • methods
  • data
  • results
