Join the Transregional Center for Democractic Studies (TCDS) July 2-18, 2020 in Wroclaw, Poland for the 29th Democracy & Diversity Institute!
For all New School Students, the Application Deadline is March 30, 2020.
The Democracy & Diversity Institute, organized annually by the Transregional Center for Democratic Studies (TCDS), is admired as an intimate international forum for lively but rigorous debate on critical issues of democratic life, offering an interdisciplinary, comparative, and interactive approach to the social, political, and cultural challenges facing today’s world.
Given the combination of a diverse student body from various parts of the world, a dedicated faculty, a challenging curriculum, and a setting conducive to debate on both the past and the future, the Institute offers an intellectually, professionally, and personally transformative experience.
Located between Berlin, Prague, and Warsaw, and saturated with the history and memory of these three distinct cultures, Wrocław (formerly Breslau), is a beautiful and booming city that uniquely conveys both the challenges and the promise of a united Europe. Drawing on Wrocław’s culture of the borderland, TCDS’s network of distinguished collaborators and alumni, and The New School’s reputation stemming from our long-term engagement in the region, the Democracy & Diversity Institute offers a program of critical inquiry on some of the most pressing problems of our time.
The program will be complemented by study tours of Lower Silesia’s political, cultural, and historical landmarks as well as evening gatherings featuring intellectuals and artists from the region. This year the Institute will conclude with a special two-day Democracy Seminar symposium attended by senior intellectuals from the region.
Our focus this year is on the need — and the opportunities – for Reimagining Our Future.
