PL 8/08: Midsummer start for LATINA

Filed under: education, LATINA, library 2.0 — Tags: , — plinius @ 12:51 pm

Summer schools are surprisingly popular – all over Europe

Now I look forward to the new summer school at Oslo University College. The school itself, and the LATINA course, starts on Monday, June 23. We expect about fifteen participants, from China, Croatia, Ethiopia, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, and Russia and Sudan.

The evening, which is celebrated by open air parties and bonfires and, is called Sankthansaften (Jonsok, St. John’s Eve).

Past summer schools

I like summer schools, with their heady mix of academic work, personal meetings and cultural encounters. I have been a student at three summer schools, in Sinaia/Romania (1973), in Thessaloniki/Greece (1978) and in Cracow/Poland (2006). For about ten years, during the seventies and eighties, I also directed the graduate course in peace research at the International Summer School of the University of Oslo.
