IP ERASMUS – Intensive programme “Text, Memory and History”

IP ERASMUS – Intensive programme

“Text, Memory and History” (5 ECTS)

Stavanger 19.08 – 01.09.2013

Participate in an international workshop with MA and PhD students – 14 days with intensive classes and students from Norway, Sweden and France…

What?

Knowledge about the European past and especially the knowledge about how the past is today interpreted, transmitted and used in different national and cultural contexts is perceived to be of extreme importance for the organisation of the community. History, memories and cultural heritage affect people’s existence and their co-existence with others. Transcultural and interdisciplinary knowledge in Europe about cultural memory and cultural heritage is furthermore central to develop a more comprehensive understanding of modern social challenges.

The intensive programme workshop will bring together 60 students in history, literature and cultural studies … and 15 teachers from three different European institutions. The 60 students will work together for 14 days and the 15 teachers will be involved in group teaching, workshops, theory lessons, project management, as well as individual/group supervision for students.

The innovative aspect of the pedagogy of this IP lies in its transcultural, transnational and interdisciplinary character (History, Literary Studies, Political sciences, Film Studies, Cultural Studies…), in the balance between solid theoretical lessons and diversity of empirical studies but also in the use of ICT in presenting the work and dissemination of results.

The expected learning outcomes are as follows:

After the IP the students will

  • Have knowledge about different national traditions within the interdisciplinary fields of historical literacy, cultural history and heritage/memory studies.
  • Have knowledge about the theoretical and methodological framework for historical literacy, cultural history and heritage/memory studies.
  • Be able to exploit the terminology and theoretical references in their own reasoning to analyse cultural, political or social objects that have a historical basis and/or significance.
  • Develop critical understanding of the use of the past in different cultural, social or political context.

The proposed IP is targeted at second cycle MA students and third cycle PhD students and teaching staff from the three participating institutions. In addition to the lectures in plenum, the students will work in small groups, where they will be asked to discuss and exchange thoughts and ideas within the interdisciplinary field of historical literacy, cultural history and heritage/memory studies. The discussions will be organized around theoretical/methodological challenges or empirical studies that should have been introduced previously in a lecture in plenum.

Graded assessment will be used by the partners and upon successful completion of the Intensive Programme, students will be awarded 5 ECTS. The grades will be awarded by the teaching staff based on the student’s response to the learning process and the production of the final essay, where all students are assessed in accordance with the learning outcomes. The credits gained during the IP will be incorporated into Master or PhD degrees at their respective institutions. All the three partners use ECTS in their academic programme and this ensures greater transparency and compatibility for students participating in the IP. Students will also be awarded a joint IP diploma with the logos and seals of all the partner institutions.
