ThHF at Summer School in Ghana

Summer time is vacation time, is time for further education and new projects. From July 24 to August 4, 2017, the International Summer School will be held at the University of Cape Coast (UCC), Ghana, with the topic “Land Use and Mobile Lifeforms”. Two lecturers and one lecturer from the Friedensau Adventist University (ThHF) are significantly involved. The participants at the Summer School turn to different perspectives on nomadism, migration and displacement. They come from Germany, Ghana, Ireland, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, South Africa, South Sudan and Sudan. The research interests are questions that are directly related to migrants, cattle-hunting nomads and land displaced persons, but also to mobile living forms. About 30 participants are involved in this two-week program, where content is conveyed, but contact management is not neglected. It is the second cooperation project between the Center for Gender Research, Advocacy & Documentation in Ghana (CEGRAD, UCC) and the Friedensau Adventist University in Germany. It has been designed and coordinated by Prof. Ulrike Schultz, Dr. Jill Blau and Kwaku Arhin-Sam (ThHF) as well as Prof. Akua Britwum (UCC).
