At the concluding workshop Transnational academia in transnational conflicts, seminar participants will discuss how academic solidarity functions during the war on transnational level, what is the impact of the war on the area studies and on the global academia, what are the new potential fields and topics that became relevant now?
After the successful 2022-23 academic year, Central European University is continuing the INVISIBLE UNIVERSITY FOR UKRAINE (IUFU) certificate program (offering ECTS credits) for junior and senior undergraduate (BA) and graduate (MA and PhD) students from Ukraine, whether residing in Ukraine or in refuge, whose studies have been affected by the war. The name of this transnational solidarity program evokes the various nineteenth and twentieth-century underground and exile educational initiatives (such as the “flying universities”) in Eastern Europe, as well as the tradition of Invisible Colleges formed after 1989 in the region.
IUFU is supported by the Open Society University Network, with co-funding from the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD), as well as the Porticus Foundation, the Institute of International Education (US), XTX Markets (UK), and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
This two-day workshop is co-organized by Prisma Ukraïna, IUFU, and the Imre Kertész Kolleg Jena.
