INVITATION to the ISHA Osijek
Summer Seminar 2016
Dear ISHA colleagues and friends,
we are very happy to invite you all to ISHA Osijek’s Summer Seminar that will take place from Monday 11th until Saturday 16th July 2016 in Osijek, Croatia. The topic of the seminar is “History of the Marginalized”. Current situation in Europe and elsewhere incited the idea for this topic and recent events ignited fear of certain groups. In our opinion, this asks for more discussion about the subject in general.
As we all know, marginalized groups are sometimes quite interesting and can have a special place in society. This seminar, however, will mostly deal with marginalized groups whose voices are harder to hear and whose position in society is complicated. History is full of evidence of such groups and some of them have only recently started being recognised. This topic would cover religious and ethnic minorities, sexual minorities, gender and LGBT history, the role of women in history, people with (for the time) rare or unexplainable health conditions, prostitution, criminal organizations, prisoners, bandits, heretics, etc. We will discuss the history of these groups, how society saw them, how they progressed or regressed over time, who the most famous individuals were, and much more.
There will be five workshops and one PhD workshop. The seminar has a total capacity of 45 participants. The participation fee of 90 euros will include a five-day accommodation with all three meals per day, a fun trip, free public transportation, and all of the sightseeing. The first deadline for the deposit (50 euros) will be 11th May 2016. The deadline for the rest of the fee (40 euros) is 31st May. The students dormitory, where the participants will be accommodated, is located in the city centre and just one block away from The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
The application period starts on Monday 11th April 2016 at 00:01 (CET) and ends on Saturday 16th April 2016 at 23:59 (CET). The participants list will be published on April 21st 2016.
