The ERASMUS Strategic Partnership Geo-philosophy of the Balkans (GEOBALKANS) focuses on developing curriculum that will promote trans-disciplinary and critical political studies, bringing into dialogue and co-operation various traditions of critical theory and multiple disciplines from the humanities and social sciences (psychoanalysis, anthropology, contemporary philosophy, art theory, cultural studies, memory studies, gender and sexuality studies, media studies, human geography, history etc.), and develop innovative pedagogies, teaching, assessment and learning environments that would co-respond to this approach. Relying on the core critical theory’s commitment to political and cultural transformation and fostering of democracy, justice, equality, reconciliation and trans-cultural dialogue and openness, by leveling the importance and entangling knowledge production and critical analysis with active political and democratic engagement, GEOBALKANS aims to offer prospective students cross-disciplinary and critical understanding and tools for analysis and research on contemporary political phenomena, by setting the geopolitical location, relations and politics of the Balkans as its major focus of knowledge production and research.
