We will explore the uncertain space of Trieste by studying the city’s literature, history, geography, art, and architecture. We will try to answer the following questions: What happens when borders shift, populations migrate, and cultures collide? Are cultural values maintained, recreated, or at risk? Are there opportunities for collaboration and cooperation? How does geography shape culture, and vice versa? The field school will take place May 16 to June 1, 2019, and is worth six credits (3 Geography/3 English). See below for date and time information about the next information session (Nov 7, 4-5pm).
