Summer Institute: The Invisible (Cologne, 15-23 July 2014)

Theaterwissenschaftliche Sammlung, Universität zu Köln, July 15 – 23,
Deadline: Apr 2, 2014
Cologne University’s international interdisciplinary summer institute 2014 will take place from 15th to 23rd of July 2014. After last year’s founding event on “Techniques of Imagination”, participants and faculty of 2014 will focus on historiographical perspectives on “The Invisible”. We invite graduate and postgraduate students from Art History, Media, Film, Theatre, Performance and Cultural Studies to apply for our international program. Each participant may choose from three seminars led by a pair of scholars from Northwestern University
(Evanston, USA) and the University of Cologne. 2014’s program includes seminars on Art History, Theatre and Performance Studies and Film and Media Studies. In addition to our seminars we offer interdisciplinary academic workshops that allow for a dialogue across the seminars. Each participant can choose one seminar and a workshop, thus composing his/her individual study program. Seminars and workshops are framed by study trips, evening lectures by faculty, and poster presentations by students.

The summer institute will be hosted by the Theaterwissenschaftliche Sammlung (TWS) of Cologne University, one of the largest archives of theatre history in Europe. Situated in the picturesque manor house Schloss Wahn, located in the outskirts of Cologne, it provides a unique setting for learning and discussion, combining gracious surroundings with facilities for daily meetings, and offering access to exceptional archival materials in proximity to one of Germany’s most vibrant metropolises.

All sessions will be conducted in English.
