European Studies Winter School (online)

The Online European Studies Winter School offers introductory lectures on the European Union as a preparation for analyzing today’s identity politics in Europe. Participants will therefore not only become experts on the EU’s history, policy-making structure and policy priorities but also discuss how decades of European governance, migration flows, and recent crises phenomena impact on European citizens’ identity formation and political mobilization in societal conflict. In order to understand how identity politics plays out in different EU member states and the transnational European realm, participants will attend online lectures, round-table sessions and asynchronic discussions via LMU’s e-learning platform. Besides, participants may apply for and attend the Online German Language Course in parallel.

Please note that the Online Winter School will be offered twice a day during the program allowing participants to either attend morning or evening sessions (Munich time) in light of their respective time zone. For further information, please consult the program Website.
