Primary insights will be given on the topic so students can duly prepare for the course. These preparatory readings and movies will cover all topics dealt with during the summer school. All students are expected to follow this preparatory track. A more equal starting level of understanding between all participants favours collaboration and maximises the knowledge transfer during the summer school itself.
These preparatory materials/packages, each linked to one theoretical session, will be made available to students in the months preceding the summer school.
Next to the theoretical sessions based on insights from different disciplines, students will engage in a group work that will let the teams apply some aspects of the knowledge and skills taught during the theoretical sessions. In doing so, students are expected to make a hands-on interpretation of (some of the topics) dealt with during the course.
On the first day of the summer school interdisciplinary and international groups will be composed. Topics will cover a wide array of options as to enable all participants to find an appropriate match between their interest and the content of the group works. At the end of the summer school, groups will need to present their working process to their peers and to the academic committee.
A list of possible cases to work on will be provided before the start of the summer school.
