Dovzhenko Centre is partner of Ukrainian Summer Film School in Germany
Olexandr Dovzhenko National Center is a partner of this year's International Ukrainian Summer School Viadrinicum.The summer school will be held in Frankfurt an der Oder from 24 August to 6 September 2015.
The Viadrinicum is an International Ukrainian Summer School that provides students and young scholars with the opportunity to deepen their knowledge about Ukraine, its language, history, politics and culture. With the help of an interdisciplinary approach of cultural, social and economic sciences we try to combine diverse perspectives with a focus on the current situation in Ukraine as well as its historical development. Therefore students and young scholars from all disciplines are invited.
In one of seminars Stanislav Menzelevskyi (Oleksandr Dovzhenko National Center, Kyiv) will talk about representations of the heroic in Ukrainian Cinema from the beginning of the medium until the recent developments around the Maidan (e.g. Небесна Сотня). In the evenings you will have the chance to watch some examples in film screenings. Scholars from the project Donbas Studies provide a third seminar on their activities in the Donbas region, where they connect academic methods with cultural production and civil society activism. The result is called Scientific Activism.
