"Balkans' Cultural Heritage, Art and Vision: from Confluence to Coexistence"
Director of the School: Prof. Elizabeta Dimitrova, PhD
As a continuation of the summer schools in cultural studies 2002 (United People-Divided Nations. Journey Through History Of Arts) and 2003 (Balkan Cultural Identities: From Multiple Antiquities To Multiplex Modernity), this School should further elaborate the already established base for interdisciplinary analysis of Balkans' cultural phenomena, their historical significance and their reflection in the contemporary cultural life of the region. Thus, the main goals of the courses comprising the program of the School dedicated to Cultural Studies, would be to focus on the issue of the general cultural concept of the Balkan region, through analysis of the common and particular features of the cultural activities of its population.
Resource persons: Prof. Stasa Babic, Aleksandar Palavestra, Prof. Ida Sinkevic, Prof. Sašo Korunovski, Prof. Nebojša Vilić.
Start of the Regional Seminar in Gender/Women’s Studies and European Studies, 2004-2006,
“Gender and Women’s Studies for Southeastern Europe: Rethinking Strategies and Ideologies of Their European Integration”
Director of the three-year seminar: Prof. Katerina Kolozova, PhD
Through the intersection of the gender/women’s and the European studies, introducing the integrative European perspective, the seminar will undertake the task of situating these points of specificity into the wider context of the European theoretical legacy in the realm of gender/women’s studies. Thus, by way of placing the specificity into its European context, through the comparative approach, the Seminar will also engage into an establishing of a pertinent insight into the points of intellectual and theoretical commonality. More specifically, besides the aspect of – we would argue – the conjoint (predominantly) continental education and theoretico-intellectual tradition, one will also take upon oneself the endeavor of establishing the research priorities shared both in the Southeast as in the West of Europe by the gender/women’s studies.
Core resource persons: Svetlana Slapsak, Gabriele Griffin, Rosi Braidotti.
