EUR INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE SUMMER SCHOOL
INTERDISCIPLINARY KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER AND PRACTICE-ORIENTED PROJECT WORK FOR STUDENTS
How can industrial heritage sites credibly practice sustainability? Students from European universities will address this question at our 14-day European Industrial Heritage Summer School "Industrial Heritage x Sustainibility" from 5 to 20 August 2023 in Berlin, Germany.
The event is aimed at students from a variety of disciplines, in particular museology, cultural studies, history, public history, industrial archaeology, cultural and tourism management, architecture and urban planning, as well as heritage conservation, sustainability and communication studies.
The intensive programme combines interdisciplinary knowledge transfer with practice-oriented project work. In advance, the participants visit an industrial heritage site in their own country - preferably an ERIH member. They present this site during the Summer School, which takes the form of a BarCamp. The first part of the Summer School will focus on acquiring knowledge about industrial heritage in its broadest sense. In the second part, small groups will work on problem solving and project ideas. At the end of the programme, exciting visits to industrial monuments in Berlin are planned.
Applications are open from 21.03.2023.
The 'European Industrial Heritage Summer School' is a joint programme of ERIH, the Berlin Centre for Industrial Culture and the Berlin University of Applied Sciences (HTW). Thanks to an ERIH scholarship, the participation fees are low. Participants are welcome to stay in touch with ERIH after the event and to get involved in the new network of young professionals.
The Summer School and the results of the working groups will be presented at the ERIH Annual Conference in November.
