In Between? – Neighbours Meet in the Borderlands
31 August–11 September 2021, Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine – Usedom/Wolin, Carpathia and Roztocze
In Between? is an educational project for students interested in exploring the history of the European borderland regions. The participants are given a unique opportunity to conduct academic research using oral history methodology and learn how to present the results with help of the newest technologies.
This year, the sixth edition of "In Between?" is called "Neighbors meet in the borderlands". Participants from four countries are divided into three bi-national teams that will embark on study visits to the German-Polish, Polish-Slovak and Polish-Ukrainian borderlands. During their week-long stay, the groups will create podcasts about the history and life of the inhabitants of the border areas. Upon completion of the project, the recordings will be made available on the ENRS website as well as Spotify and Simplecast platforms.
All participants will also present the results of their research at a closing conference in Berlin from 22-24 September 2021. In case of further coronavirus restrictions, the conference may be held online.
