The borderlands of contemporary Europe share a unique culture of memory, shaped by the turbulent history of the 20th century: its wars, geopolitical changes and mass migrations. It is in such regions that the European Remembrance and Solidarity Network organises, for the eighth time, the 'In Between? Searching for Local Histories in Borderlands of Europe' summer school. We invite students of the arts and humanities from all over Europe to participate in the project. This year the participants of 'In Between?' will meet in Warsaw and subsequently set off on study visits to Alsace, Friuli Venezia Giulia or Cieszyn Silesia, where they will interview members of the local communities and produce a series of podcasts. Applications can be submitted up until 24 April 2022.
