This summer program explores the issues of memory and identity in Central and Eastern Europe. Since the program takes place in Warsaw, special emphasis will be given to the case of Poland. The program is hosted by Centre for Social Studies at the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
The course consists of two seminars: The Roma in Central and Eastern Europe and Polish-Jewish Relations.
A unique part of the program is the six-day study tour at the end. Students have a chance to visit the following places that are related to the course 1) Tarnow. Students will take a tour of the city and learn about the vibrant Jewish community that once lived there. Students will also visit the Ethnographic Museum, which has an excellent exhibition on the local Roma population, 2) Auschwitz-Birkenau, 3) Krakow (students will tour Kazimierz, the Jewish district).
The price is 3,000 USD and includes tuition; housing; an academic and social director; 6-day study tour; free use of a pre-paid cell phone; local transportation pass; extra-curricular activities; and health insurance.
Students will receive an official transcript that will allow them to transfer credit to their home universities (4 semester/6 quarter credits). Application deadline is June 15, and students can apply on-line.
