PATTERNS Lectures 2012/13 – new call has been launched - Call for
submissions of proposals for university courses

PATTERNS Lectures has launched 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.

We support course development, study visits, literature purchases, guest
lectures, student excursions and publications connected with the courses.

*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.

We are particularly interested in courses which:
*have been recently developed and have not been held before
*analytically deal with the period starting from the 1960s up to the
present day, including the year of transition in 1989
*deal with cultural phenomena before 1989 until today, including aspects of
popular, marginal and counterculture
*examine interdisciplinary and cross-cultural history in Central and South
Eastern Europe
*involve critical methodology and innovative and interactive teaching

Who we support
The call addresses lecturers at public universities in Central and South
Eastern Europe who offer study programmes in the fields of art history,
cultural studies and cultural sciences and related fields. Course proposals
by external lecturers must be integrated into the framework of a public
higher education institution.

Courses should be held in the academic year 2012/13.

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

Application documents and procedure
