Summer School 
European Summer School in Canadian Studies 2022

The European Summer School in Canadian Studies is the first of its kind in Europe and a joint venture of the Universities of Innsbruck and Vienna. It pursues two aims: (1) It addresses the multidisciplinary field of Canadian Studies and encourages an in-depth reflection on one of the European Union’s key partners, Canada. (2) It supports students and young researchers from Europe and beyond in building international networks.
