2016 International Summer School in Berlin

In Feb/March 2016, we had our summer school held in UGM, Yogja. We are fortunate to receive fund from Erasmus + to conduct another round of summer school in Berlin in the same year. The unique of the Berlin summer school is that the study of Southeast Asia as an area is conducted in a non-Southeast Asian area. 

Berlin is certainly a great city to study about memory and memory making. Berlin offers not only the variety of monuments and memorial sites, there is a line-up of narratives and counter-narratives that the city engages with national history and the community of particular place. 

In the first week of the summer school, the students (as well as the lecturers) are exposed to places that essentially form the history of Berlin yet are marginalised from the national history of Germany. 

Below are some sites that students visited in which at later stage they were assigned to choose one site for their "fieldwork" so as to engage in a dialogue on memory making processes with the site, so to speak.
