From Offline to Online to Hybrid
Due to the potential restrictions to international travel, this year’s edition of Viadrinicum will not be possible in its usual format, when participants from various countries are invited to Frankfurt (Oder) and Słubice for two weeks at the end of summer. Instead it will take place in a hybrid format, featuring a mixture of online and offline activities.
Most of the programme elements will be offered online, including seminars, workshops, public discussions, case study and open space sessions, as well as visits to an art institution in Berlin and to the Center of East European and International Studies (ZOiS) (www.zois-berlin.de), which is our partner institution this year.
Lab.Workshops and Local Partners
The only part of the programme that will take place offline (conditioned the epidemiological situation permits) consists of the three parallel Lab.Workshops (Art.Lab, Doc.Lab and Research.Lab), during which the participants of the school will develop their own small (team) projects. These projects will be developed and carried out in the countries of participants’ residence, so that the necessity for international travel is avoided.
Every workshop will be supervised by a workshop leader distantly. However, in the countries of the Eastern Partnership (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine), Russia, Poland and Germany participants’ activities will also be coordinated with the help of local partner organizations, which will be gradually announced before the start of the school.
The European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) will be able to offer up to 25 travel scholarships (up to 200€), that will allow participants to arrange a visit to the partner organisation in their respective country, in case necessary. This way collaboration between the participants from one country can be made possible also offline.
The scholarship can also be used to cover transportation and accommodation expenses that might be necessary for implementation of the participants’ projects – for instance, in case a field work in a city different from the city of residence is required.
To make your participation in the summer school Viadrinicum 2020 possible and productive, you would need the following technical equipment:
Stable internet connection
Microphone and camera (inbuilt in the laptop)
As we will be using software for video-conferencing and interactive group work, these elements will be crucial for an active involvement in the discussions and exchange that will happen during the school.
Viadrinicum 2020 on (Post-)Migration
Viadrinicum is an annual summer school devoted to the countries of the Eastern Partnership, and the larger context of Central and Eastern Europe. This year‘s edition is designed as a digital transsectoral lab on (post-)migration, aiming to tackle the notion of (post-)migrant society from multiple theoretical and methodological angles. With the help of online academic seminars the school will allow its participants to deepen theoretical insights into the topics of (post-)migration, convivial diversity and multilocal belonging.
Besides that, the participants will be able to enhance their practical and methodological skills in the framework of several project-oriented workshops, organised in the respective countries of their residence with the help of local partners.
Among others, the programme includes the following
Prof. Dr. Kira Kosnick / Dr. Darja Klingenberg (Frankfurt/Oder), Who Needs Migration Research? Methodological Critique and Research Strategies
Dr. Tsypylma Darieva (Berlin), Post-Migrant City between Cultural Difference and Cosmopolitan Sociability
Dr. Anne Holper (Frankfurt/Oder), Conflict Mediation in the Context of Diversity
Peggy Piesche (Berlin), Doing Diversity
Case studies of migration-related civic and cultural initiatives from Kyiv, Wrocław, Chișinău, Moscow, Berlin
Besides the academic part, participants of the school will also be able to develop their own small (team) projects in the framework of three workshops (Art.Lab, Doc.Lab, Research.Lab) under the close guidance of experienced supervisors.
Furthermore, there will be an online film screenings, public discussions, and Open Space sessions where participants will have a chance to discuss their own scientific or cultural projects with peers and scholars.
