The AILAE Summer School© held with the Università della Calabria in 2009 instigates rigorous investigation and debate around the role that European changing borders are playing in influencing culture-play in and around the Mediterranean regions. Migration and Diaspora have linked these regions to each other and to the Australian and American areas. Nations are merging and new identities are forming: in-betweenness is a category that translates into the urgency for new formations and new projects. AILAE acknowledges the need for a wide and accessible international debate between European, Australian and American intellectual communities to focus on dynamics of identities and relationship between cultural practices.
The 2009 AILAE Summer School with Università della Calabria proposes opportunities for: productive dialogue - theorizing on multiculturalism and post colonialism - discussing immigrant communities - theorizing their relationship to European and colonial legacy. This year the School aims in particular at challenging and instigating reflection about a critically engaged, contemporary understanding of cultural practices in the European Mediterranean and Australian regions. The AILAE Summer School is an annual event which counts amongst its lecturers a number of international leading scholars.

This year’s teaching team will include:
Jon Stratton ~ Ghassan Hage ~ Ian Mc Lean ~ Mireille Astore ~ Franca Tamisari
