European Network Remembrance and Solidarity began to recruit participants for an educational project of study visits called “In Between? Searching for local histories in European borderlands”.
The initiative targets young people aged 18-25 and aims to improve the knowledge young European have on the historical processes in 20th-century Europe, equipping those interested in history with tools and methods for examining and documenting the past as well as documenting oral reports and audio-visual materials concerning history and the identities of Europe's border communities.
The participants selected in the recruitment process are going to take part in workshops delivered in Warsaw by experts in most recent history, oral history, anthropology and archival studies who will train the participants in basic methods of collecting reports and photograph digitization. After the workshops, the participants (in teams of six) are going to go on week-long study visits to border places in four regions of East-Central Europe (Bukovina, Lubuskie Region, Banská Bystrica Region and Transylvania). The visits will result in collecting interviews and audio-visuals documents which reflect the past of a given region; the project participants will also attempt to make the personal, local historical narratives that they have collected a part of a broader context of Europe's regional history. The project will close with a conference to be held in Warsaw in late 2016.
The recruitment process will young people aged 18-25 interested in:
- history and art history,
- social sciences,
- cultural anthropology
- and visual arts.
