UNIMED – Mediterranean Universities Union, in collaboration with Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme (http://www.fmsh.fr/en), is organising a one-week Summer School on “Mediterranean Identity: talks around a common destiny”. It will take place in Licata (Sicily) from the 30th of September to the 4th of October 2019. This Summer School will be organized along the “Nnumari” event, organized by the Sicilian Chef Pino Cuttaia.
The purpose of the Summer School is to create a network where experts from different sectors, such as sociology, science, art, journalism or culture, can discuss the sustainable development of the Mediterranean Region, through the lens of our common background and in particular our common traditions related to food (production, consumption, experiences…), in order to offer a positive paradigm to the Euro-Mediterranean relations.
The training project is addressed to students and young researchers of different fields to allow them to share their analyses and point of views on the Mediterranean Sea, while providing them with a common multidisciplinary forum of discussion to find ways of positively impact the future generation’s knowledge and awareness about the value of the Mediterranean heritage and resources.
The deadline to apply is June, 14 th 2019 and the summer school is open to students of the associated universities.
