List of Summer Schools in 2022:
Summer School: Intimacy in Women's Writing and Reading
This International Summer School is intended for MA and PhD students who have research and future professional interests in women writers and related issues.
The Summer School is designed for secondary-school students interested in astronomy. The participants will perform the main project activities by using the GoChile telescope. In small groups they will, under the supervision of their mentors, carry out and present a simple research project. They will develop their observational skills also by working with the telescopes they will set in the vicinity of Ajdovščina. Moreover, at afternoon lectures they will broaden their theoretical knowledge about the areas and topics such as cosmology, black holes, dark matter and cosmic particles.
The School is organised and funded by the University of Nova Gorica within the framework of the project "Promocija študija s STE(A)M področij za poklice prihodnosti", financed by the Ministry for Education, Science and Sport of the Republic of Slovenia, in cooperation with the Cosmolab Institute.
In this workshop, participants will explore tools and methods of Strategic Foresight, a discipline that works closely with Speculative Design, and combine them with particular approaches in Art Thinking. The workshop will be held during the 24th edition of the Media Mediterranea festival.
The workshop topics will address this year’s festival’s theme “Worlding the Hydrosphere”, in particular the burning issues of marine and maritime worlds, coastal communities, their manifold ecologies and challenges of sustainability, post-tourism, sea-borne migrations, oceanic and archipelagic thinking, climate change, energy consumption, post-growth, etc. Is there a space for a new kind of (Blue) Humanities to emerge?
