What the Summer School is about?
The collective remembrance to historical events, disputes or ideas is a key resource of social movements, whilst social movements and labour itself have been key forces contributing to building, and strengthening democracies and creating institutions that democratically govern capitalism. This summer school wants to explore the rise, development, challenges and strategies of social movements with a strong focus on their memory cultures. During this five-day Summer School we will discuss the formation (and instrumentalisation) of memories across labour and other social movements.
At the kick-off meeting the course leaders and students discuss the content and organisation of the summer school, build working groups and get to know each other. To prepare the summer school between the kick-off meeting and September, e-learning will be initiated. Overall the summer school will evaluate the memory cultures of diverse social movements with the help of external experts.
Lecturer Stefan Berger (Department of History)
