Beyond Horizons - Transmitting and Writing New Identities of Minorities and Migrants in Europe

when 17 June 2018 - 22 June 2018
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 450

This summer school will examine the function and meaning of cultural transfer as an important tool to build up sustainable societies. Special attention will be paid to minorities and migrants.

During the 5th edition of this successful summer school, we will focus specifically on minority culture worldwide: from the Sami to Italy (beyond borders), and from exile in the Hispanic world to Francophone female voices from Iranian decent.
We will explore how minority writers react to the societal, political and cultural processes that define our current moment, and look at the methodological implications of entangled histories. On the final day of the summer school participants will give a presentation.

"The Beyond Horizons summer school was probably the best intellectual event I had during my studies. My advice: Do not hesitate and register for the next year's summer school now :)"
