Summer Program, May 24 - July 4, 2015, organized by the Center for Interdisciplinary Polish Studies (ZIP) and the Department of International Affairs of the European-University Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder)

Recognizing the deep cultural and historical ties between ethnicities in our region, the theme of the Summer Program 2015 is "Contact Zones in Central Europe." Central Europe has been defined by its multi-ethnic character since at least the days of Johann Herder, and has since inspired numerous intellectuals with its tenuous nature and offer of ethnic understanding. One the on hand, the peoples of Central Europe have given birth to some of the most virulent and violent nationalisms in modern history. On the other, the region has become the home of countless minorities on the search of religious tolerance and economic prosperity. By focusing on contact zones in Central Europe, the faculty of the summer program offer advanced BA, MA and PhD candidates both thematic seminars, guest lectures, excursions as well as language courses introducing the state of the art in the field.

Our Campus is located directly at the German-Polish border, just take a walk across the bridge and find yourself in another country. Experience living in a region that has been influenced by major European historical impacts and join us on excursions to find traces of (inter-) European encounters!

Application deadline is March 6, 2015.
