“History Takes Place – Dynamics of Urban Change” September 2014 – Rome – Call for applications

 

The ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius has initiated the Summer School “History Takes Place – Dynamics of Urban Change”, which will take place this year from 1 to 10 September 2014 in Rome. Taking the Italian metropolis as an example, the objective of this year’s summer school is to create an international network of the historical, cultural and social sciences as well as architecture and city planning, in order to examine current developments in urban environments.

Since 2003 the ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius has invited up to twenty young historians and social scientists (usually postgraduate students) annually to take part in studies programmes in various locations. The Gerda Henkel Stiftung is the programme partner since 2009. The aim is to find the traces of history in the topography, architecture and monuments of the place. The city itself is ‘read’ as a historical source – ‘History Takes Place’.

Further information can be found under www.history-takes-place.de or requested by email: hofmann@zeit-stiftung.de

The deadline for applications is 15 May 2014.
