Objectives This intensive, two-week, Course offers a forum of discussion on the subject of border and culture crossings in and out of Africa, in a multidisciplinary perspective. The teaching modules will focus on the insertion of Africa in the contemporary world system, and on migrations and social movements set in the historical and present interactions between Africa and Europe.The Course is addressed at post-graduate students interested in international and migration studies, and in African­-European relations. It will enable them to be facilitators in current cultural, social and political inter-exchanges of people, goods and ideas.The Course offers a circular exchange of ideas, methods and information between different disciplines, nationalities and regional study areas, through a set of lectures, workshop presentations and study group discussions.Oral presentations, participation in-group discussions and presentation of a final report will be the basis for the final assessment.
Program S1. The problematic of studying Europe-Africa relations in the contemporary world in the light of border-crossings and border-transcendences: perspectives of analysis and current debates.
S2. Theory: understanding the tensions and dynamics of locality, nationality and regionality in the context of globalization, from an interdisciplinary standpoint. Critical analysis of the theoretic prospects of the border-crossing concept.
S3. Methodology: comparative indicators, measures and categorizations of European and African borders: converging and contested histories; typologies; local, national and regional identities as interactive processes.
S4. Theme 1: Europe-Africa relations in the new world system: from pre-colonial and colonial history to contemporary political relations.
S5. Theme 2: Transnational mobility: migrations in and out of Africa, into and beyond Europe.
S6. New African politics and social mobilization: Un-bordering: Europe and Africa compared.
