IPSA-Federica Summer School in Concept Analysis in the Web Environment, September 2-6, 2018, Island of Capri.


The 1st edition of the IPSA Summer School on Concept Analysis in the Web environment will be held in Anacapri, the enchanting island in the Gulf of Naples, Italy. Jointly organised by IPSA and Federico II University, the Capri IPSA Summer School Workshop is recognised as a leading program providing advanced theoretical and practical training in methodology to its participants. The 2018 edition, Concept Analysis in the Web Environment, focuses on the theoretical framework and analytical tools for developing Political Science concepts with an innovative blended formula of online and onsite teaching.


This leading IPSA program provides advanced theoretical and practical training in qualitative methodology, based on the Hyperpolitics approach for concept analysis in political science. Hyperpolitics is a pioneering application of web 2.0 logic to create a Repository of Political Science Concepts. An academic ecosystem, comprising books (Calise and Lowi, University of Chicago Press, 2010), working platform, hyperlinks and learning communities that define concepts in terms of their relationship to other concepts.


The format and venue of this event are a perfect fit: the layout and flow of the picturesque Orlandi Villa and gardens reflecting the varied and fluid structure of the program activities. The combination of comfortable study rooms, online workspaces, shady terraces and lawns, offers the perfect backdrop for the blend of formal and informal, individual and group reflection, discussion, tutoring and presentations that the Summer School offers.


The format of the Summer School is an intensive and interactive workshop, therefore places are very limited and admission will be granted on a first-come-first-served basis.
