Graz International Summer School Seggau

I’m participating, since sunday, in the awesome Graz International Summer School at the Seggau Castle.

007The summer school as the topic of “Collective Identities: Nationalism, Transnationalism – Europe and Beyond” and has some fantastic lecturers to go along with it.

In the picture above you can see Professor David Bates with the microphone but also (from left to right): Professors Guy Laforest, Daniela Larion, Ulla Kriebernegg. There are other resounding names such as: Professors Josef Raab, Heidrun Moerti, Alexia Schemien, Soeren Kell, Kresimir Krolo and Luis San Vicente Portes.

Although the summer school cover a range of subject, the one I most interested is Cultural Identities in the US. I’m having classes with Professor Marietta Messmer (The Netherlands), on the subject of the Mexican-US border, which is just amazing. Next week I’ll have another great teacher, Professor Isabel Caldeira (Portugal), on Post-Modernist feminine discourses of the African Diaspora.

I’ll leave you with some pictures of the lectures and the venue
