In the beginning of last week Cathrine Borg and Maria Quvang Harck Vestergaard participated in the Forge Summer School in York about time, travel and everyday life.
Maria Quvang Harck Vestergaard tells about their experience:
There was a long list of inspiring lectures all concerning mobility and time mixed with activities filled with interesting discussions and space for displaying our creativity. My favourite activity was a wrap up visit at the York Castle Museum, where we had to find critical understandings, elements, practices and technologies of our daily lives that have emerged, disappeared, or changes over time and then discuss them through the knowledge we have gained from the lectures and other activities and in the end present our ideas and discussion.
Beside all the scheduled activities it was nice to meet and talk to other young researchers who also are working with mobilities in one way or another and to find common interests and disagreements about the subject.
Forge Summer Schools can definitely be recommended to other young researchers.
