The Institute for Human Sciences (IWM) organized the Summer School in cooperation with six partner institutions in East-Central Europe: the Center for Advanced Research in Phenomenology, Charles University, Prague; the Institute for Contemporary History, Prague; the Erasmus of Rotterdam Chair and the Collegium for Interdepartmental Studies, both at the University of Warsaw; the New Europe College, Bucharest; and the Society for Higher Learning, Bratislava.
Approximately forty graduate students from Eastern and Western Europe and from the United States were invited to participate in this two week program consisting of four courses. Students were required to enroll in three courses which will meet daily Monday through Friday. There was no tuition for the Summer School; course materials, room and full board will be provided. Participants were, however, responsible for travel costs to and from Cortona and for incidental expenses. Weekend excursions were arranged.
The Summer School was generously supported by the Robert Bosch Foundation
