Everyone has a story to tell. For anthropologists, such accounts can reveal as much about the people and societies we study as more conventional research. But the process of collecting stories in the field and retelling them in the academic arena is littered with pitfalls. How do we ensure that our subjects are fairly represented? How do we construct a culturally sensitive narrative whilst maintaining scientific validity?

Apply for the VU Amsterdam Summer School by filling out our online application form. If you apply for multiple courses, you only need to fill out the form once by selecting all courses you wish to participate in. Before applying make sure to read the General Terms and Conditions. In the online application form you will be asked to provide the following documents (no larger than 1 MB per document):

  • Motivation letter. Please make sure to describe your motivation for the specific course(s) you apply for: Why this topic? How will the course contribute to your future (academic) career?
  • Curriculum Vitae/Résumé
  • Transcript of records (a printscreen of your most recent grades is sufficient)
  • Copy of passport/identification

Deadline for application is 1 May 2017. It is advisable to apply and pay sooner, to guarantee your place before a course is full.

If you have any questions regarding the procedure or anything else, always let us know at amsterdamsummerschool@vu.nl. We respond quickly. Your admission will be definite once we have asessed your application on the basis of the entry requirements, availability in the courses, and once we have received your payment. Your place in the VU Amsterdam Summer School will not be guaranteed until we have received your payment.
