Summer School for junior scholars interested in the history of the Balkans

The Summer School “History Takes Place – Dynamics of Urban Change” will bring together from 4 to 15 September 2017 international young researchers – historians, art historians, archaeologists, cultural and social scientists, city planners and architects. This year’s programme is focused on the complex and multi-layered history of Belgrade and Sarajevo. The ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius and the Gerda Henkel Foundation invite the participants to study the connections between historical events and spatial development.
Since 2003 we have invited up to twenty young historians and social scientists (usually postgraduate students) annually to take part in studies programmes in various locations. 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’.
