INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL: "CULTURES, MIGRATIONS, BORDERS"
International Summer School
Cultures, Migrations, Borders
Plomari, Lesvos island, Greece
3 –14 July, 2013
For Master and Ph.D. students in the social sciences
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 welcome applications for the Summer School 'Cultures,
Migrations, Borders' that will take place on the island of Lesvos from 3 to
14 July, 2013.
Drawing upon an increasing interest in the study of cultures, migrations and
borders, our Summer School examines how migrations shape and are shaped by
processes of boundary formation in a variety of cultural encounters.
The programme of the course is structured around four thematic axes:
a. Theoretical and methodological issues in the study of migration and
b. Institutional and political aspects of the migratory condition.
c. People on the move: immigrant groups, refugees and host communities.
d. Cross-cultural encounters across borders and interactions of
host/immigrant on the border.
Apart from lectures by specialized scholars, the programme includes a number
of fieldtrips which form the basis for project preparation and presentation.
Students will have the chance to interact with asylum seekers hosted at a
reception centre, experience border life and the reality of border crossing
from Greece (Mytilene) to Turkey (Ayvalik), visit a former detention center
for irregular immigrants and become acquainted with the cultural heritage of
Lesvos. Doctoral students will have the opportunity to present their work at
a seminar designed for their needs.
This year the Summer School also includes a public event with leading
scholars in the study of migration and border-crossing. The event is open to
the participants of the Summer School and the general public.
