Summer School: International Summer School Cultures, Migrations, Borders, Lesvos, Greece‏


Join the International Summer School on the island of Lesvos in Greece

Cultures, Migrations, Borders

Master and PhD students in the social sciences can apply before May 15
for this Summer School. You will examine how migrations shape and are
shaped by processes of boundary formation in a variety of cultural
encounters.

The Summer School is organised by the Department of Social
Anthropology and History of the University of the Aegean and the
Institute of Migration and Ethnic Studies of the University of
Amsterdam.

The Summer School aims at bringing together students and researchers
in humanities and social sciences with an interest in borders and
migration.

The programme is designed to combine theoretical instruction by
renowned instructors from five universities with various on-site
activities.

The border island of Lesvos provides an ideal location for holding
this summer school, as it has been an important gate of immigrants and
refugees to Greece and Europe.

Programme

Theoretical and methodological issues in the study of migration and borders.
Institutional and political aspects of the migratory condition.
People on the move: immigrant groups, refugees and host communities.
Cross-cultural encounters across borders and interactions of
host/immigrant on the border.
