Exploring Central Europe: History, Memory, and Identity Across Borders
You’ll be a part of a learning community that is based in the heart of Central Europe and that travels to Prague, Budapest, Berlin, Krakow, Bratislava, and Vienna. You’ll investigate sites tied to WWII, the Holocaust, and Soviet totalitarian rule. Explore the big questions of the 21st century—how people from different national and ethnic identities, with different languages, cultures, and traditions, are able to live together after wars and other kinds of violence and trauma. Learn about the complexity of issues related to history and social justice in comparative ways. All courses are taught in English. You’ll join a close cohort of students, learn from dynamic faculty, and design your own individual research project. You’ll have the opportunity to pursue exciting internship opportunities at institutions working in the areas of civic engagement, human rights, culture, politics, and the environment.
