Ocean / Uni is the first articulation of a pedagogic project in which thinking with the oceans aims to complement and enhance land-based understanding of the Earth. The aim of the Curriculum is to provide students, researchers, and the public with wide-ranging and accessible explorations of the changes taking place throughout the oceans at a high level of expertise. The proposed format of study is centered around biweekly sessions to take online on Zoom between 16th September and 16th December 2020.

INFORMATION

Ocean / Uni’s format of study is centered around eight biweekly sessions to take place online on Zoom between September 16 and December 16, 2020.

The curriculum is open to:

  • University students (BA, MA, and further) from different disciplines and fields of study (Art and Architecture, Literature, Social Sciences, Cultural Studies, Marine Sciences, Environmental Studies, Earth Sciences, Engineering, Law, Political Science), selected across several partnering universities.
  • Anyone with an interest in deepening their knowledge, understanding, and experience of the research topics unfolded in the exhibition Territorial Agency: Oceans in Transformation.

The core group of participating students, together with participants from the public, will attend and engage in conversations, exploration, and analysis on the transformations at stake in the Anthropocene Oceans.

Lectures will be held exclusively in English, so a good listening and speaking level is recommended to ensure a meaningful learning experience.

Participants are required to register for their attendance to the seminar online in a webinar format. You are welcome to register in advance for more than one session.
