Summer Schools in Greece

We are happy to present you our 2019-2020 summer schools catalogue, offering the opportunity to international students to visit Greece over a short term study abroad program, live in a Greek city, study together with their Greek mates, meet Greek academics, learn about the opportunity to study in Greece in an English taught course, learn the history and the traditions of the country and enjoy cultural excursions all over Greece.

The programs offered draw from a wide variety of disciplines thanks to the multiple collaborations obtained. Some of the fields of study covered are architecture, classical philosophy, theater, archaeology, history, art and ecology, often through an interdisciplinary approach, studied in relation to contemporary technologies and tools of the digital era. All programs draw from the Greek experience, either as a source of knowledge or as lens through which the subject is examined.

If you have in mind a program not listed here, you are the most welcome to suggest it to include it.
We wish you a happy reading of the catalogue!

Summer School - "Cultural Trauma"

| Return |

Cultural Trauma:

Holocaust and Genocides in the East

CuTrau2019

SCHOOL OF SOCIAL SCIENCES - Department of Sociology

20 Aug 2019 to 25 Aug 2019

Lesvos, Skala Kallonis

 

Key-speaker: Jeffrey Alexander, University of Yale

 

Organizer: Manussos Marangudakis, University of the Aegean

 

ΑΦΙΣΑ HIGH-RES (1)

The theme of this year’s summer school is ‘The religious aspect of cultural trauma’. In this framework we will examine three cases of genocides/cultural traumas, each one of them strongly related to the religion of the persecuted ethnic groups: the Yazidi of northern Iraq by the ISIS, the Jewish community of Thessaloniki by the Nazis, and the Pontian Greek community of Asia Minor by nationalist Turks.

 

The question the summer school will address is: How does the religion of the persecuted group affect cultural trauma? Does religion - both as an institution and as ‘deep culture’ - play a distinct role in the way cultural trauma is formed and shaped, or is there something intrinsically humane, cross-cultural and cross-religious which constitutes the core of cultural trauma? 

 

To this effect the summer school is inviting key members of the three persecuted communities to present their cases and to reflect on the ways their respected communities have dealt with the traumatic experience. What kind of narratives have emerged out of their communal interactions? What kind of sentiments and feelings emerge out of their commemorative events? How do they make sense of their experience? And what do they consider to be a healing process and justice?

Shik, Naama (International School for Holocaust Studies, Yad Vashem)
