The Summer School Waterscapes in Heritage and Environment

June 1-7, 2024, Croatia

Waterscapes in Heritage and Environment is an interdisciplinary summer school that focuses on water as a natural element, a socio-cultural construct, an opportunity for subjective repositioning and a change of perspective through which to observe historical, cultural and environmental relationships and dynamics between communities, places and heritage.

Promoted for the first time in 2022 by Elena Bougleux, Professor of Anthropology at the University of Bergamo, and Sanja Inguman Glušac, researcher at the Institute of Philosophy and Social Theory at the University of Belgrade, for this third edition it extends its partnership to the NBFC and the Department of Human Sciences for Education "Riccardo Massa" of the University of Milan Bicocca. This collaboration is in addition to those already in place with other Universities, such as the University of Straslund and the University of Rijeka, University of Zadar and local stakeholders.

The school will take place on board a boat sailing along the Croatian coast. Along the way, a number of stops will be made at sites of particular natural, architectural, historical and anthropological interest. The programme includes seminars, naturalistic explorations on land and at sea, individual and group project work and is developed by lecturers and students with different disciplinary backgrounds ranging from anthropology, marine sciences, cultural heritage, biodiversity education, sociology and tourism.

Among those activities the implementation of a special Nature Exploration Toolkit is planned: a biodiversity education method and toolkit developed by a research team of NBFC.

In addition, an important new feature for this edition, thanks to the contribution of the University of Bergamo, the boat will be equipped with a solar energy system to make the charging of electronic devices independent of the boat's electrical system.
