SUSEES is a Summer School in Sociologies of Education open to emerging researchers from all across Europe who intend to consolidate their expertise in studying education policies, practices and outcomes from a EU angle, assuming the European dimension as the privileged point of observation. SUSEES stems from a synergy between EERA Network 28 ‘Sociologies of Education’ and a well established group of educational researchers that focuses its teaching and research agenda on Europeanisation and the challenges of knowledge society for education. Every year, participants are involved in an innovative and ground breaking 4-days laboratory where leading scholars from the field will discuss how they use theories and methods in their research and writing. The scope of the lectures will be to provide participants with new insights on the potentials of those theoretical resources in producing new research questions In studying the European dimension of education. The lectures are followed by work sessions: a) a laboratory for research imagination on European education where participants will be divided in three groups, and asked to elaborate with the help of three tutors from the teaching staff on the approaches presented in the lectures by producing a conceptual map that link theoretical resources with research questions; b) a feedback session with the lecturers, the academic coordinator and two members of the key staff as discussants.
