I have been awarded a Erasmus Internship Scholarship by European Union to do a research stay at the Department of Urban and Environmental Sociology at Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ in the city of Leipzig (Eastern Germany) during July, August and September.
For this reason, I have decided to create a blog category (“Visiting UFZ Leipzig“) entirely devoted to my impression during this period. By impressions I mean reflections on the research I am conducting and also on the reading material I am consulting on environmental sociology and, particularly, on post-mining and restoration (a center topic in my dissertation). Moreover, I would like to share with you some of the interesting discussions I had so far with some of the department fellow. Well, I also hope to blog on the city and my everyday life in Leipzig, always trying to intertwine both my personal and academic experience.
