The International Hellenic University, in partnership with Charles University of Prague, Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) of Cyprus and with the support of the LSEE-Research on South Eastern Europe is offering a 2-week intensive Summer Seminar for students and graduates of Political Science, History, Anthropology, International Relations, International Law, Journalism and other related disciplines. The course can be taken by both undergraduates and graduate students.
The general theme of the summer school is Nationalism, Religion and Violence in SE Europe. A key goal of the summer school is to contribute in a substantial way to the study of violence and to catalyze the growth of the study of violence as a field. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to forge valuable connections with one another and with senior scholars working on various aspects of violence.
The Seminar takes place from July 1-July 12 2013 in the premises of the International Hellenic University, Thessaloniki, Greece. Additional activities including trips to nearby sites of interest, museum and city tours, round out the seminar.
There will be a sequel to the course, to be held in Prague in summer 2014 with different but related thematic foci. Applicants interested to participate in both events will have a fee discount and receive an accredited double certificate of attendance.
