Historical Sciences
Registration: No longer possible
Faculty: Faculty of History, Philosophy and Theology
Title: Political Participation: Ideas, Forms and Modes since Antiquity
Content: Participation is a key concept of modern political discourse. This phenomenon has been around since antiquity and is relevant today. Discussions on participation in decisions and in political resources have always been a subject of social debate. So far, historical research has seldom approached this issue from an epoch-spanning perspective. This is precisely where the summer school intends to start with its consideration of political participation.
The event is linked with the binational Master’s degree programme History Bielefeld-Bologna (BiBoG), which gives students the opportunity to acquire a MA degrees from both universities involved. The summer school is supported by the DAAD [German Academic Exchange Service].
Dates:18-22 May 2015
Target group: The summer school is aimed particularly at advanced Master’s and doctoral students from Germany and Italy.
Participants: 45 participants from Germany, Italy and Greece
