Marburg Summer University 2011

Hessen International Summer Universities (ISU)
University of Marburg
July 26 - August 19, 2011

Peace and Conflict. Near and Middle East – A European Perspective.
The Near and Middle East is a direct neighbour of the European Union. Exceeding this geographical proximity, the two focal points of this year's summer university are united by a long mutual history and a present not without conflicts, including political and economic interests and mutual dependences.

The summer university will approach these issues from the angle of political sciences, sociology, and history as well as cultural and regional sciences. The ISU will thus profit from the skills and synergies of two scientific institutions at Marburg, the Center for Conflict Studies and the Center for Near and Middle Eastern Studies. Two representatives of these institutions are the academic directors of the ISU: PD Dr. Johannes M. Becker and Prof. Dr. Rachid Ouaissa.

The 13th Hessen International Summer University (ISU) offers a summer study program with

seminars in German and English on the main topic,
German language courses,
credits (ECTS points),
an extensive cultural program with weekend excursions, evening lectures, parties and more.

Target Group
The ISU program is designed for students, researchers and teachers, as well as for people working in the fields of politics, economics, culture and media who want to learn more about German and European culture, economy and politics and learn the German language or refresh their German by participating in an intensive language course.

ISU - The Summer University
Located in the heart of Germany, Marburg an der Lahn is a small, lively and safe medieval town with a long university tradition. The ISU location, university cafeteria and the romantic and picturesque old city with its castle, cafés, pubs, boutiques, as well as movie theatres, museums and theatres are all within walking distance. You will find your way around quickly.

The ISU takes place at the University of Marburg, which was founded in 1527. With about 19,300 students and 7,500 staff members, it is one of Germany's medium-sized universities.

Immediately upon your arrival in Marburg the ISU team and faculty members will begin to take care of your personal and academic needs which they will continue to do throughout the program. Weekend trips, evening events and special lectures provide a diverse program and complement your classroom studies. The activities and events also allow you to get to know each other better. You will learn a lot and feel at home.
