Overview

This one-week CIVIS School provides an interdisciplinary programme that explores trans-European modernist trajectories through the study of various cultural forms and spaces.

The course focuses on transnational connections and dialogues in conjunction with a recent reflection on borders, migration, mobility, collective memory, essential to understanding our current moment. 

The School invites applications from MA and PhD students working in various fields across the humanities, including Art History and Theory, Literary Studies, Philosophy, Cultural Theory, Geography, and Linguistics.

Participants will attend lectures, seminars, webinars, workshops, roundtable discussions and mentoring sessions.

This CIVIS summer school will explore modernist trajectories across Europe and the Mediterranean. An intensive 6-day course, it will expose students to a variety of perspectives and help them understand the role transnational connections and dialogues play in (re)shaping modern social and individual civic responsibility though critical readings and discussion, seminars and guest lectures. 

The programme will be delivered by a pool of specialist working in the fields of history, literature, the visual arts, geography, and philosophy. Non-academic experts will also be invited to deliver talks and participate in roundtables with a view to stimulating an awareness of the role of institutional mediators in facilitating cultural transitivity across borders. 

Students will deepen their critical skills through active participation in the seminars and roundtables, as well as visits to local cultural institutions. By the end of the course, students will have applied research methodologies and theoretical frameworks to a wide variety of issues across national cultural and political boundaries.
