In his "Theses on the Philosophy of History," Walter Benjamin famously reads the Paul Klee painting Angelus Novus, not as a "New Angel" in keeping with the original title of this watercolor, but as an "Angel of History." Benjamin describes the angel as flying backwards (and thus looking at the past) toward the future, blown by a huge storm. This storm, Benjamin says, is what we call progress.

II. INTERNATIONAL UNDERGRADUATE SYMPOSIUM

Hey you(th)!

This is your opportunity to cross your BORDERS and expand your horizon.

The symposium is also your opportunity to develop both social and communication skills, as well as broadening your perspective by enabling you to see beyond presupposed definitions of what borders are.
To give you an idea what your presentation could be about we took the liberty of listing a few possible topics;
• Borders and border-crossing in literature, arts, media, society, politics, religion, history, etc.
