Join a week-long intense programme of activities organised around the theme of Crossing Borders. Dr Karolina Follis, lecturer in the PPR department, will guide you through the city while drawing on her expertise in borders and border policies in the European Union.
Borders of different kinds offer the chance to explore and understand the meaning and challenges of global connections, diversity and rapid social and political change. You will explore the history and contemporary politics and practices of establishing borders and boundary making. Berlin, as it is geographically today with its unique historical sites, museums, distinctive neighbourhoods and diverse population will be our classroom. You will walk, talk, meet Berliners and sample the foods representing the diversity of the city. Venture out of town, you will visit the border between Germany and Poland in Frankfurt/Slubice. You will participate in seminars, read and watch films that enhance your understanding of the role borders play within society.
This non-credit programme offers immersive learning that will be of particular interest to students of Politics and IR, German, History and Sociology.
Programme Cost: £585 (includes scheduled activities and accommodation during your stay)
