SFUrope

Project lead: Prof. Dr. David Becker
Project member: Dr.in Sara Paloni
Project duration: 1/2020 – 12/2020

About

SFUrope is a research-based teaching project, led by Prof. Dr. David Becker (SFU Berlin), and implemented by Dr.in Sara Paloni (SFU Vienna), in close collaboration with all SFU branches and with the support of the Institute of Statistics (SFU Vienna).

The project is divided in three phases: Phase 1 consists of an online survey exploring attitudes and emotions of students and academic staff of all SFU faculties and branches, in relation to three item sections: (1) Europe, (2) National Identity and (3) SFU. In phase 2 the European-wide survey results are distributed to all local SFU branches and faculties. The results serve as impulse for supervised group discussions in theory and method courses and for further research projects in every SFU branch. In phase 3 ten students from each SFU branch (50 students in total) will meet three days at the Friedensburg Schlaining (Burgendland/Austria) for an Autumn School. Together they will present and discuss the research results and the research processes. On the last day the students will have the chance to discuss these results with experts from the fields of history and peace studies.

SFUrope enhances the creation of a trans-national research network, helps develop and discuss different methodological approaches, and simultaneously creates an interesting set of research data in reference to a crucial topic. SFUrope aims to facilitate a process in which SFU students and academic staff reflect together on Europe and on the national-cultural contexts of their academic careers.
