The Faculty of Social Sciences is one of the most multidisciplinary faculties in the HSE. It is the product of uniting the faculties of sociology, applied political science, psychology and public administration, which are now schools, and a series of laboratories, research centers and institutes. This kind of synthesis of education and research in the sphere of social sciences is a standard part of global best practice for a modern research university.
We train researchers, analysts and practitioners of sociology, political science, psychology and management, and specialists in education, demographics, public policy and civil society. Our primary strategy in teaching bachelors, masters and doctorate courses is to prepare students to meet global demands and requirements as successful professionals.

National Research University Higher School of Economics (Moscow, Russia) end European University Institute (Florence, Italy) open call for applications to the First International Spring School "New Dimensions of the Political: Energy, Memory, and the Body".
13-20 May 2017; Tuscany, Italy.Application deadline – 3 March 2017.
In the midst of international turmoil, this century brings us back to the fundamental questions of social science:
— What is the modern, 21st century equivalent of the noble ideals of progress and humanism?
— What is political evil and how has it survived democracy, the will of the people?
— What is the relation between political economy, the body of the state, and our human bodies?
— What are the causes of inequality, and why has the modern state failed to overcome them?
— How did “history politics”, the politics of the past, displace the politics of the future?
— Which forms of political protest are viable and effective, and how do they depend on cultural, gender, and class differences?
Working though these classical but partially forgotten questions, we will focus on three major concentrations: fossil energy and the modern state; history and memory; and the politics of the body.
The School is co-organized by the Department of Political Science at the National Research University Higher School of Economics and the Department of History and Civilization at the European University Institute. The School is led by Professor Sergei Medvedev (NRU HSE) and Alexander Etkind (EUI).
The School will take place in Tuscany, at the villa Fattoria Bacio, 35km from Florence. The program of the School includes lectures by professors from Italy and Russia, project work, and excursions. The working languages are English and Russian.
Students of any academic level and any university are welcome to apply. The School is part of the international educational project Escapes from Modernity (Facebook).
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out the cost of participation and submit your application. An application should include full name, place of study, e-mail, and phone number. The deadline is 3 March 2017.
