|Call for Applications DAAD Summer School ĄPotentials, Perils, and Promises of Ethnic Diversity ď|
Chernivtsi, August 24th – September 1st, 2019
The summer school deals with critical analysis of the potential and the dangers of ethnic diversity. For this topic, the region of Bukovina and the city of Chernivtsi are a perfect location. In the Habsburg Monarchy, the region was characterised by historical co-existence of various ethnic, language, and religious groups. Unlike many other regions, Bukovina, and especially its urban centers such as Chernivtsi, did not have one dominant ethnic population. Identities were multi-layered, and most people spoke several languages as well as developed an umbrella regional identity. These conditions led to Bukovina becoming a model of interethnic cooperation and political moderation, with the ability to find political consensus becoming the trademark of the local culture.
Working language of the summer school is English.
Participants will come from Chernivtsi (10 people), other cities of Ukraine (5 people), and from Germany (5 people). The lecturers are from Germany and Ukraine.
We especially encourage advanced students (Master’s and PhD level) to apply. In order to be eligible, participants must be Ukrainian residents and be at least in their third year of university studies. All applicants are asked to submit a CV of no more than two pages and a letter of motivation of no more than 700 words, both in English. The letter of motivation should outline the reasons for applying and the intended benefits you expect for your further studies at university, research, or professional career.
Please send your application and possible enquiries to <daad.chernivtsi@ uni- marburg.de>.
