Thank you!

The 10th ASNEL Summer School ‘Spaces of Projection’ was a full success. The organising team would like to thank the participants, the lecturers and the seminar instructors for a week of academic delight and fun. It has been a pleasure to meeting and exchanging ideas with you all. We would also like to thank all the sponsors and everybody who supported our venture financially, conceptually and manually. Without all this help the smooth realisation of the Summer School would not have been possible – thank you all!

“Spaces of Projection” is an international Summer School in postcolonial literatures, cultures and linguistics. The Summer School takes place biannually and is organised by students under the auspices of the Association of the New Literatures in English (ASNEL). In 2011, a team of students from the English Departments of the Universities of Bern and Basel, supported by the Basel Centre of Cultural Topographies, will bring the ASNEL Summer School to Switzerland for the very first time in its history. This event will be hosted at the Universities of Bern and Basel from 5 – 9 September 2011.

National and international BA and MA students who are interested in exploring the concept of space in connection to postcolonial literature, history, and linguistics, are welcome to attend the Summer School. During one week students will profit from a wide range of lectures and seminars by renowned academics from the UK, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. The Summer School will be rounded off by an attractive evening programme with a reading,a film screening, a city tour of Bern and an “Urban Safari” tour in Basel as well as other social get-togethers.

This Summer School is a unique opportunity to meet and socialise with like-minded international students, to hear lectures and attend seminars by esteemed academics, to spend time in two beautiful cities, and last but not least, to gain ECTS credit points.

We look forward to welcoming you in Bern and Basel. If you have any questions, please write us: info@spacesofprojection.ch
