Marie Jahoda Summer School 2017
Exile and Memory – Interdisciplinary Perspectives
September 24-29, 2017
The 6-day schedule, with the exception of day 1 and day 6, is divided into two parts: the morning session will consist of presentations of individual PhD-projects and feedback of faculty members concerning research design, conceptualization, data collection, and data analyses. Midday lectures give an audience to faculty members to present their research. The afternoon session consists of methodological workshops and workshops with practitioners. The summer school evening program offers open lectures (Prof. Hirsch, Prof. Laacher), a film screening and a round-table on the role exile in present days. The summer schools working language is English (with exception of the roundtable which will be in German).
A total of 6 ECTS points are awarded for the participation. Participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance.
The overall aim of the summer school is to facilitate an intensive, collaborative and intellectually open exchange across disciplines for PhD students and early stage researchers, in addressing individual or collective forms and practices of doing memory in the context of exile, and its social and institutional conditions.
Accordingly, a mix of internationally esteemed scholars, researchers and practitioners will be brought together to provide a diverse but thematically focused range of research perspectives across methodological and disciplinary boundaries. This approach will be set within an innovative learning environment for the participants who will benefit from a fine-tuned mix of foundational lectures and workshops.
