SummerSchool Flossenbürg 2018 1


In Cooperation with
the Chair of Southeast and East European History at the University of Regensburg and
the Public History Program at the Ukrainian Catholic University L’viv
the German-Ukrainian Historical Commission

Memory and the interpretation of past events are crucial in the construction of a national identity. Yet memory is not constant. It is permanently reinterpreted and differs in time and space. During a Summer School at the Flossenburg Concentration Camp Memorial, we intend to explore how the memories of the Second World War and the Holocaust influences the identity of different nations on a local, regional, national and international level.

Through a very innovative programme focusing on exchange and dialogue between young academics, we aim to get a better understanding of these diverse identities: How do different nations choose to remember the past and to what ends? The programme will focus on differences and continuities in the culture of remembrance of Germany, Ukraine and Kyrgyzstan. Participating students will be supported in their enquiry through lectures by accounted experts. They will also get to know the history of the Flossenburg concentration camp and the culture of remembrance at the memorial site through a variety of tours and workshops to frame the theoretical input. However, we mainly wish to encourage dialogue between students, for example through “barcamps”, allowing participants to discuss and analyse what they are most interested in in this context.

The Flossenburg Concentration Camp Memorial invites graduate and undergraduate students from Germany, Ukraine and Kyrgyzstan to apply for an intensive seven-day-programme from 19 August 2018 until 26 August 2018. We highly encourage students interested in the history of the Second World War, the Holocaust and their memories from different disciplines to apply. The language of the Summer School will be English. The programme will take place at the Flossenburg Concentration Camp Memorial and in Regensburg. We ask students from Germany to pay fee of 80,00 € in advance and to cover their travelling costs to and from the venue. We ask students from Ukraine to pay a fee of 30,00 €, traveling costs will be covered by the memorial. All other costs during the programme will be covered for all participants by the Flossenburg Concentration Camp Memorial. For students from Kyrgyzstan, the programme is free of charge and all travelling costs will be covered by the memorial.

To apply, please send a CV and a letter of motivation to Rebecca Weiss
(
rweiss@gedenkstaette-flossenbuerg.de) until 31st May, 2018 latest

(Attention: Due to visa issues, we ask all students from Kyrgyzstan to apply until 11th March, 2018 and students from Ukraine until 31th March, 2018 latest!).

Відкрита дискусія «ПАТРІАРХ ЙОСИФ СЛІПИЙ: БУТИ СОБОЮ!»
9 лютого 2018 р. Київ, вул. Мазепи 10-А

 

2018 02 06 Slipyi

9 лютого 2018 р. в приміщенні Київського центру Українського католицького університету відбудеться відкрита дискусія «Патріарх Йосиф Сліпий: бути собою!» з нагоди завершення Ювілейного року вшанування 125-ліття Ісповідника віри та колишнього предстоятеля УГКЦ. Промовцями на цьому публічному дискусійному форумі виступлять Блаженніший Святослав Шевчук, владики Ігор Ісіченко та Борис Ґудзяк, а також співпрацівники УКУ – проректор Мирослав Маринович, професор Оксана Міхеєва та докторант Анатолій Бабинський. Предметом обговорення стануть дві ключові теми: як нам сьогодні в Україні та в глобальному контексті відповідати на сучасні виклики, щоб «бути Церквою» та «бути Народом», послуговуючись досвідом і прикладом Великого Патріарха.

Цей симпозіум вінчатиме ширшу програму наукового відзначення ювілею, яку Інститут історії Церкви УКУ упродовж року проводив з благословення Синоду єпископів УГКЦ. Задля того, аби популяризувати постать цього видатного мужа Церкви і провідника Народу відбулася ціла низка заходів: круглий стіл у Києві під назвою «Патріарх Йосиф Сліпий: знайомий і незнаний», виїзні сесії в Полтаві, Харкові, Запоріжжі, Ужгороді, Чернівцях, Одесі, Вінниці; науково-практична конференція для вихованців семінарій у Львові про вклад патріарха у розвиток богословської освіти й науки, літня школа в Римі про міжнародні еклезіальні та політичні аспекти його діяльності, наукові семінари в Лювені (Бельгія) та Заґребі (Хорватія). Також було підготовлено банерну фотовиставку, яка експонувалася в багатьох містах України та поза її межами. Матеріали виставки лягли в основу науково-популярного видання «Будьмо собою – життя та заповіт патріарха Йосифа Сліпого», яке побачило світ у Видавництві УКУ та було презентоване й отримало відзнаку Львівського форуму видавців.

Завершаться урочистості з нагоди Ювілейного року патріарха Йосифа Сліпого Архиєрейською Божественною Літургією і Панахидою в Патріаршому соборі Воскресіння Христового 18 лютого 2018 р.

For more information visit Call of Applictions page

Deadline for all applications:  February 11, 2018.

Convention theme: Image of the Self

This theme follows the previous convention’s “Image of the Other.”  We seek to examine the way states, societies, interest groups and social movements, as well as individuals, represent themselves to themselves and to others through manifold means including language, culture, literature, the politics of history, and politics as such.  Images of the self can be found, of course, not only in scholarship but also in popular writing, artistic expression, and in the public sphere.

How have some images given rise to stereotypes and instrumentalized narratives?  How have some others constituted resources for tolerance, mutual respect, and cooperation?  These issues appear in headlines worldwide, but they seem especially salient in Eastern Europe and Eurasia.

MAG invites proposals directly or indirectly addressing topics related to the “Image of the Self.”
