Women writers in history

Zovka Kveder (1878-1926), Alma Karlin (1889-1950)

“Every woman should study women's history for at least a year, no matter what she does. Every woman changes when she realizes that she has a story. " (Gerda Lerner)

The concepts that will be discussed in the courses, in the summer schools and in other events will enable thinking about different constructions of gender in and through literature. Students will learn about rich female literary tradition and will be empowered for own agency in the field of literature but also in everyday life. Nevertheless, the answer to the question why we would like to offer to the students a new wider range of competences in the field of women writer’s history and digital humanities is hidden in the words of American historian Gerda Lerner who said: “Women, ignorant of their own history, did not know what women before them had thought and taught. So, generation after generation, they struggled for insights others had already before them, resulting in the constant inventing of the wheel.”

Ars Techne: Creative Design and Innovation

Ministerial Awards ceremony in Zagreb, 2019

Ars- techne is a network coordinated by the University of Maribor, that plays an important role in the field of textile education.

An important and visible achievement of the network is a series of international CEEPUS Winter Schools, known as Design Week. Their aim was to cover the whole spectrum of modern engineering design of clothing and/or other textile forms in the broadest sense, including the closely related areas, such as: Art, colour/light theory, fashion theory, photography, wearable computer technology, smart and intelligent clothing, ergonomics of the thermal environment and innovativeness. The aim of an interdisciplinary concept of the Winter Schools is the interaction of different disciplines, the combination of scientific and artistic disciplines and the connection of the creativity of students from different universities and from various countries. Within the framework of the lectures and a wide range of targeted Workshops, the students dealt with the theoretical and practical aspects of design in the broadest sense. The network won the CEEPUS Ministers' Prize of Excellence 2019.

What our scholars have to say
Georgi Mladenov
Working on his master thesis in Sorpon (HU)
“My CEEPUS exchange exceeded my expectations. I managed to progress a lot with my thesis and to acquire new skills in the field of mathematics. I made great contacts both with lectures and students. I hope to welcome my colleagues from the University of Sopron in Ruse (BG) next semester.”
Milica Stankovic, PhD
Professor from Nis, Serbia
During my stay in Ljubljana, I had the opportunity to give lectures in the area of Circular Economy and global challenges. The multidisciplinarity of the topic contributed to a great result and an excellent discussion with students from study fields of biology, biotechnology, environmental protection and food technology on the topic of the circular economy. I am sure that this CEEPUS teaching mobility is the first step towards a future successful cooperation.
Dr. Gabriella Vöő
Exchange teacher in Olomouc
There was a large student turnout, the students were interested and they participated in the discussions. I had conversations with colleagues about academic and administrative matters and we also discussed possibilities for joint research projects in the future.
