This international and trilingual Summer school, entitled La Ville/The City/Die Stadt, will consist of three parts:
1) exploration of the urban landscape of a bilingual, multicultural city faced with challenges of local inclusion and global networking; as well as cultural linkages
and similarities between metropolises Montreal, Berlin and Leipzig 2) an intensive seminar on classic German social and critical theorists’ (Weber, Simmel, Kracauer, Frankfurt School, Freitag) reflections on the centrality of the urban experience to democracy and (post)modernity; and 3) a public two-day conference in which the students will present their own relevant research and exchange with prominent scholars invited to speak.
The week-long summer school will feature cultural events and meetings with Montreal cultural, political and intellectual minds.
