The Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Alcalá in Spain will hold the next teaching mobility pilot within the Teach with Erasmus+ project, under the title Trends and Transitions in Europe between 1920 and 2020.
The aim of this teaching mobility pilot is to look back at the fracture at the end of the First World War, followed by the European aesthetic and intellectual self-discovery that produced strange new brands of art, science, and spirituality while flocking to exciting but dangerous new ideologies including communism and fascism, and place it in dialogue with current age of uncertainty, with a greater emphasis in its many legacies in present day politics, society, and culture.
The University of Alcalá offers three different tracks: Literature and Arts, History, Politics and Thought, and Linguistics and Sciences.
With this program, the university aims to create a network of teaching and research staff from different areas of the Arts and Humanities, to provide the students with high quality training, and to discover different teaching methods and approaches.
During the week-long programme, the participating teachers and students will have the opportunity to engage in workshops, seminars, a round-table and a final symposium.
Due to the COVID-19 situation the timing is still unsure, but with a high possibility it will be held during the spring semester of the 2020/2021 academic year.
