About the summer school

Suitable candidates

Bachelor's and Master’s students are eligible to apply to this course. But please note, that the exam is at Bachelor’s level only. The course is open to international exchange and guest students and Danish students as fee-paying guest students.

Academic qualifications

This course will be taught in English, therefore good English skills are required. All applicants must have completed the first year of studies at Bachelor’s level (60 ECTS) before the summer school begins on July 1st

Teaching and learning methods

The programme consists of lectures and ‘walking tour lectures’; group seminars and collegial debates being unfolded on-site run by the summer school team; and field trips and independent field studies and assignments.

The primary assignment for the course is a critical and analytical logbook. It is a place-based daily learning tool and a daily learning practice that challenges students to couple emplaced and embodied ways of knowing with more traditional forms of scholarly literature citation; grounding theory in place. Every walking-tour lecture and field study entails one required logbook entry/page, and each entry must combine textual and visual analyses alike. The logbook as a whole is due in digital format at the end of the course, before 12:00 noon on Monday 13 July 2020.


A reading list will be specified for accepted students by May. It is expected that students read all the required text material before the summer school.
