Default Summer University - The Mantle of the Prophet: Demons, Saints and Terrorists

Summer University - The Mantle of the Prophet: Demons, Saints and Terrorists, July 7th to August 15th 2008, Germany

The European College of Liberal Arts (ECLA) in Berlin announces its ninth International Summer University: The Mantle of the Prophet: Demons, Saints and Terrorists, which takes place from July 7th to August 15th 2008.

The key text is DostoyevskyтАЩs Demons, and the keynote theme derives from the oft-repeated reference to Dostoyevsky as тАЬprophet.тАЭ During the six-week course, Demons becomes a central text around which to explore major moral, religious and political issues. These include the historical and intellectual roots of terrorism, its embodiments from state terror to individual violence, and its expression of nihilist and existential questions. In addressing these issues, students and faculty will augment their discussions through the reading of a variety of complementary philosophical, literary and historical texts. In addition, the special Explore Berlin component of the curriculum introduces students to some of the rich cultural offerings of the city.

Hallmarks of the programme are: small seminar groups, regular writing assignments, individual attention in one-on-one tutorials, and a close-knit international community of students and faculty that resides on campus. Students from all levels of undergraduate and graduate education are welcome.

A comprehensive programme fee of 4500 Euros covers tuition, campus accommodation, full board, books on loan, reading materials, class excursions, emergency medical insurance, internet access and transportation passes.

Financial aid is available. ECLA is committed to providing financial assistance grants to all successful applicants based on demonstrated financial need.

The application deadline is April 10th 2008.
