CfA Summer School “History Takes Place – Dynamics of Urban Change” (Deadline: 30 Apr 2019)

The Summer School “History Takes Place – Dynamics of Urban Change” will bring together from 23 to 27 September 2019 international young researchers – historians, art historians, archaeologists, cultural and social scientists, city planners and architects. This year’s programme concentrates on the city of Tel Aviv-Jaffa focusing on its Bauhaus heritage and will be hosted by the White City Center in Tel Aviv. The ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius and the Gerda Henkel Foundation invite the participants to study the connections between historical events and spatial development.

Since 2003 we have invited young historians and social scientists (usually postgraduate students) annually to take part in studies programmes in various locations. The aim is to find the traces of history in the topography, architecture and monuments of the place. The city itself is ‚read‘ as a historical source – ‚History Takes Place‘.
