The aim of the project: to look at the Studentenkarzers as a unique cultural-historical object, to characterize the organization of the university study process and an integral part of students’ lives.
Main activities and venues
3 online workshops:
- between the invited universities involved in the project to get to know the history and preservation of their own and other European universities’ Studentenkarzer; dating and determination of cooperation guidelines;
- to discover the phenomenon of the Studentenkarzer in the Baltics and Germany in the context of the history of universities at the beginning of its establishment; to identify the common grounds as well as the differences in the history of higher education in European countries; to describe the space restoration process and its benefits;
- to summarize the results of the project in a public online workshop, which will be available to the interested public and to decide on the continuation of the project, in the framework of which a manuscript will be prepared and a book on the Studentenkarzers will be published.
