PATTERNS Lectures – Open Call until 19 March


Call for submission of proposals for university courses
PATTERNS Lectures is launching a new call to encourage the development of university courses in the fields of art history, cultural studies and cultural sciences. The call addresses lecturers at public universities in Central and South Eastern Europe who share PATTERNS’ areas of interest and are interested in developing new courses that tackle the topics of PATTERNS. Courses should be held in the academic year 2012/13.
We support course development, study visits, literature purchases, guest lectures, student excursions and publications connected with the courses. A group of four international advisors will select 12 unversity courses from the applications submitted.

PATTERNS is a transnational programme that aims to research and understand recent cultural history. It commissions and supports contemporary cultural projects in a variety of formats and media. PATTERNS aims to document, analyse and investigate different aspects of and practices related to the transformation of daily life and culture in Central and South Eastern Europe, while accounting for the pluralities that characterise the region. The initiative focuses on the 1960s and 1970s, as well as on the “transition” period leading up to the present.

The call for submissions will be open from 30 January to 19 March 2012.

All application documents including guidelines will be available for download on 30 January at
