Organiser: Postgraduate School of Psychology-ASAG
Topics: The School is designed as an opportunity for interaction between academia and civil society organizations, with the possibility to implement projects based on actual field research. The 2011 Edition of the Summer School is focused on the multi-method investigation of the single mothers phenomenon in Africa, thematizing its causes and psychosocial implications and envisaging the realization and production of one or more documentaries.
The Summer School aims to train professional identities capable of working in an integrated multidisciplinary team, with a solid methodological background and adequate capacity to manage the challenges posed by the otherness of the context of action, capable of realizing appropriate documentary forms.
Due to its residentiality, the School, as well as to promote learning, encourages the establishment of networks of research and study among young Italians
and Kenyans, stimulating the exchange and comparison of diverse experiences.
