Testimony from Felipe Castillejo Gaitán, Universidad de Los Andes, who attended the 2021 Summer School:
It was two weeks of a lot of reading, debating and intense sessions where I had the opportunity to leave my intellectual comfort zone and grow not only in this sense, but also personally as I had the chance to hear from other colleagues and from their own contexts. Thanks to these encounters, I questioned myself and debated internally the meaning of political resistance nowadays; the parallels made between us Global South citizens; and of course the contrasts regarding our European and American colleagues. ...Thanks to these different perspectives and dissents, discussions gained more relevance and did not become just a space for consensus. The Summer School was a space for international camaraderie that allowed people to express their opinions, fears, motivations in a safe space that made possible new friendships and intellectual relationships.
Learn more; apply for the in-person program; apply for the virtual program.
The deadline for application is Friday, March 18, 2022.
