Spring School

After a series of annual workshop sessions, since 1999 ECSR has organized a yearly Spring or Summer School.

On March 18-21, 2024, jointly with the Collegio Carlo Alberto and NASP, the ECSR will organize a Spring School

The Analysis of Social and Educational Inequalities

ECSR, Collegio Carlo Alberto and NASP

Joint Spring School

March 18-21, 2024

Collegio Carlo Alberto

Piazza Vincenzo Arbarello 8 – Turin, Italy

The topic for the twelfth edition of the ECSR Spring School is The Analysis of Social and Educational Inequalities. The School is promoted by the European Consortium of Sociological Research (ECSR), Collegio Car- lo Alberto and by the Universities of Milan and Turin in the frame of the NASP, Network for the Advancement in Social and Political Studies. It provides high-quality training on current research on educational inequalities, in- cluding the influence of ascribed factors (social origin, gender, migration background, etc.) on educational out- comes, the teacher assessment of school abilities and performance, and the relationship between education, training and labour market.

A limited number of doctoral students and young researchers will participate in a four-day, full-immersion course, including lectures on the key topics in the field – both conceptual and methodological –, workshops, and the opportunity to present their work and have it discussed by leading scholars in the field.

The School is organized by Nazareno Panichella (University of Milan, scientific coordinator), Filippo Barbera (Collegio Carlo Alberto and University of Turin), Camilla Borgna (University of Turin), Stefano Cantalini (University of Milan), Tiziana Nazio (Collegio Carlo Alberto and University of Turin), Emanuela Struffolino (University of Milan), Moris Triventi (University of Milan) and Antonina Zhelenkova (University of Milan, practical organization).

Lectures will be given and presentations discussed by Katherin Barg (University of Bristol), Camilla Borgna (University of Turin), Stefano Cantalini (University of Milan), Herman G. Van De Werfhorst (European Universi- ty Institute), Marita Jacob (University of Cologne), Tiziana Nazio (Collegio Carlo Alberto and University of Turin), Nazareno Panichella (University of Milan), Paula Protsch (University of Cologne and Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB)), Emanuela Struffolino (University of Milan) and Moris Triventi (University of Milan).

  1. an abstract of the paper that will be presented (up to 500 words);
  2. a summary of the PhD thesis project or current research (up to 3 pages);
  3. a brief CV (one page).
