Transsectoral on (Post-)Migration. (Dis-)Integrative Encounters

Frankfurt (Oder), 17 – 30 August 2020 (Digital Edition)

Viadrinicum is an annual summer school devoted to the countries of the Eastern Partnership, and the larger context of Central and Eastern Europe. This year‘s edition is designed as a digital transsectoral lab on (post-)migration, aiming to tackle the notion of (post-)migrant society from multiple theoretical and methodological angles. With the help of online academic seminars the school will allow its participants to deepen theoretical insights into the topics of (post-)migration, convivial diversity and multilocal belonging.
Besides that, the participants will be able to enhance their practical and methodological skills in the framework of several project-oriented workshops, organised in the respective countries of their residence with the help of local partners.

Students, PhD candidates, young NGO activists and artists (up to 35 years of age) from all fields were invited to apply. The CfA is closed now.

These days there is no way to avoid the pandemic and the uncertainties that it brings with it. Nevertheless, for Viadrinicum one thing is now certain – it will take place this year, but in a slightly different format. With the bridge from Frankfurt (Oder) to Słubice still closed (for the first time in 13 years), no one can be sure if our usual two-week Polish-German border-crossing will be possible at the end of August. So instead, we invite everyone to cross the digital borders with us and transfer our exchange of knowledge from academia, civil society, and the arts online.

The CfA will be published in beginning of June. Stay tuned.

Viadrinicum is an annual summer school devoted to the countries of the Eastern Partnership region with a special focus on Ukraine.

With a strong emphasis on participatory formats the school will allow its participants to deepen their knowledge about theories of (post-)socialist urbanism, patterns of urban development and strategies of active citizenship with the help of academic seminars and enhance their practical and methodological skills in the framework of several project-oriented workshops. Students, PhD candidates, young NGO activists and artists (up to 35 years of age) from all fields are invited to apply.

The participation is free of charge, only the costs of the board (except from coffee breaks) and lodging (ca. 85 € for the whole period) have to be covered by the participant.
