Max Weber Programme Lustrum Conference, Villa la Fonte, 8-10 June 2011

The latin word lustrum refers both to a period of five years and to the celebratory ritual which marked such a period of rule and government.

During this year’s Max Weber Fellows June Conference the programme celebrates its first five years of existence and experience. A good time to show the Max Weber Fellows’ contribution to the Social Sciences and Humanities, and to Academia.

Therefore, this year’s June conference, in addition to showing the ongoing research of the 2010-2011 Max Weber Fellows, it will also be intended as a forum to foster cross-disciplinary and inter-cohort academic collaboration with the previous four years, as well as a forum of reflection of the early stages of Academic Careers in SSH in different cultural environments.

To this end around 25 former Max Weber Fellows will be invited back on the basis of their paper and/or panel proposal.

Keynote lecture, June 8th 17.00, Donald Rubin (Harvard): “On Causality: the analysis of job-training experiments”

Keynote address June 9th 17.00, European Commissioner for Education (TBC)

The Conference Programme is available here.
