INVITATION Ninth International Postgraduate Summer School CULTURES, MIGRATIONS, BORDERS | 4 – 14 July 2022

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 Ninth International Postgraduate Summer School CULTURES, MIGRATIONS, BORDERS that will take place on the border island of Lesvos, Greece, from 4 to 14 July 2022.
The Summer School aims at bringing together students and researchers in humanities and social sciences with an interest in borders and migration. The program is designed to combine theoretical instruction by academic researchers who had made important contributions to the field of migration and border studies with various on-site activities.
The North Eastern Aegean island of Lesvos provides an ideal location for holding this Summer School, as it has been one of the most important gates of immigrants and refugees to Greece and Europe and the site of a massive humanitarian intervention. The Summer School takes place in times of radical transformation and the reconfiguration of borders in national and international levels. The program aims to address political, ethical, methodological and theoretical questions in this challenging landscape.
Deadline for applications: 30 May 2022.
Please note that there will be several scholarships available for summer school participants.
