Max Weber Programme Conferences

Each year the Max Weber Programme hosts at least three major conferences: an Academic Careers Conference in the fall, a Classics Revisited Conference in the winter, and in the spring a Social Issues for Social Sciences Conference.

Academic Careers MWP Conferences:

The Academic Careers Observatory (ACO) together with the MWP organizes a yearly conference which provide a forum for reflection, analysis and debate on the current state of the 'European Research and Higher Education Area', taking into account, in particular, the perspective of young researchers in the Social Sciences and Humanities.

Through these conferences, the MWP-ACO explores and compares the structures of the academe across countries, discusses crucial questions related to the international mobility of scholars and monitors the development of research and funding opportunities for young scholars.

The Classics Revisited MWP Conferences:

The yearly Classics Revisited Conference provides a forum for reflection on, and analysis and debate of, the current state of some major issues that have already been raised by pioneer social scientists. The conference sees the active participation of the Fellows in the planning and organization of it.

Social Issues for Social Sciences Conference:

This conference is the Max Weber Fellows’ contribution to the Social Sciences and Humanities in research and academia. The conference offers the opportunity to invite back former fellows as either speakers or discussants and as such provides a forum to foster cross-disciplinary and inter-cohort academic collaboration. The conference is entirely organized by the fellows.
