The Transregional Center for Democratic Studies of The New School for Social Researchis pleased to announce the 19th Democracy & Diversity Summer Institute Wrocław [Vrot-swaf], Poland July 10-26, 2010.
TCDS will again welcome up to forty junior scholars from around the world for this intensive program of study in society, culture and politics, centered on the theme “Citizens Without Borders.” As the strong ties of citizens to a specific territory have been loosening for some time already, we will explore the emergence of new aspirations, movements, and institutions that reflect this process of de-territorialization, and new practices that reshape identities and traditional notions of citizenship.
Located between Berlin, Prague and Warsaw, Wroclaw, a once vibrant German metropolis called Breslau, was almost totally annihilated during World War II. Repopulated and rebuilt by Poles, now -- twenty years after the collapse of Communism -- it exhibits a complex, multi-layered European identity. We will draw from its culture of the borderlands, and from the hybridity of a place where west meets east and where the past is revealed, in order to enter into a dialogue with new identities in transition.
The Wrocław Institute is organized in collaboration with the International Institute for the Study of Culture and Education at the University of Lower Silesia (DSW Wroclaw).
Courses at this year's Institute:
- Cosmopolitanism and its Discontents, Professor Andreas Kalyvas, Political Science, New School for Social Research;
- Globalization and the Politics of Public Memory, Professor Elzbieta Matynia, Sociology and Liberal Studies, New School for Social Research;
