global dis:connect summer school

The period of decolonisation from the 1930s to the 1970s witnessed the transformation of global processes of integration and exchange, which were still coloured by empire. Cultural connections, political alliances, economic relations and personal networks became subject to scrutiny and interruption. Then and after, existing connections metamorphosed, and new ones arose. global dis:connect invites to explore how instances of dis:connectivity of various kinds have affected processes of globalisation in postcolonial settings.

The summer school is scheduled to take place from 3-5 August 2022 on the premises of global dis:connect (Maria Theresia-Str. 21 in Munich, Germany). Each day is to begin with a
90-minute master class, where we will discuss a text relevant to the topic of the day, after which participants will be able to present their projects for discussion. All sessions will be held in English.

The summer school welcomes advanced MA-students, PhD-students and artists alike. There are no participation fees. global dis:connect is endeavouring to secure funding to cover accommodation and travel costs for participants who require it.
