Call for applications




A free summer study opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students of participating universities.

Spend two weeks in the picturesque town of Krosno studying issues of migration and its representations with scholars from eight European universities!

Earn 6 ECTS points!

'Narration and Migration' takes a multidisciplinary approach to one of the most urgent questions facing Europe today: the nature of migrant experience and its connections to both personal and national identities. The project brings together students and specialists from Poland, Hungary, Germany, Sweden, Spain and the United Kingdom.



Participating universities:
Universität Bamberg, Germany
St Mary's University College, Belfast, Great Britain
Københavns Universitet, Denmark
Szegedi Tudományegyetem, Hungary
Universidad de Huelva, Spain
Högskolan Dalarna, Falun, Sweden
Universitet Jagielloński, Krakow, Poland
Państwowa Wyższa Szkoła Zawodowa, Krosno, Poland

The project consists of a ten day series of lectures and workshops where students and specialists in literature and language, social studies and history will work towards a common understanding of the nature of migrant experience. The field of teaching and study will include both past and present, as well as varied diasporic groups.

Students will come away from the programme with a new, more coherent understanding of the subject, a basis for further study at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, and a collection of materials on the subject.

6 ECTS points will be awarded on the basis of class participation and individual assignments.

The lectures and seminars will discuss:

- how and why individuals record stories of movement;
- how expatriate and diaspora histories, both written and oral, are recorded;
- how such accounts influence homeland and host country;
- how regional and national ways of telling (Europe, Africa, Asian and the Americas) differ;
- how narrative theory can help interpret migrant narratives (diaries, autobiographies, memoirs, oral histories);
- how gender differences reflect varieties of migrant experience;
- how migration changes individual and national as well as other collective  identities.


Teaching approach:

- daily lectures and seminar groups with special emphasis on interdisciplinary and collaborative textual analysis (writing, film, photography, oral accounts);
- collaborative learning with participation of students in lectures, group discussions and activities;
- ICT resources to include:
collective work on a database of migrant narratives with case studies created at IP meetings;
recording of events to be made available online;
autonomous learning with online supervision;
- undergraduate and postgraduate teaching at home universities;
- recognition of ECTS points for all courses.
