Summer school Central Europe: A Birthplace of Modernity

This summer school will offer a complex take on the historical, cultural, and political developments taking place in Central Europe at the turn of the turn 19th and 20th centuries, which had a significant impact on European (intellectual) history and culture in the decades to come. The school aims at familiarizing the students with the intricate interplay between the various radical innovations in the sciences and in the realm of culture (in philosophy, linguistics, literature, music, visual culture, and architecture) as they manifested themselves in the region against the backdrop of sweeping socio-political changes.
Some of the developments in question contributed to fundamental reconfigurations of our understanding of the human nature, the reality we inhabit, and its representation.
