Woolf Institute Summer Schools

The Woof Institute is developing Summer School opportunities that will launch in summer 2019. The primary aim of the summer school is to offer a programme of study for students that will draw on the research and teaching expertise of staff and doctoral students at the Woolf Institute, as well as teaching staff of the University of Cambridge. 

The summer school aims to increase tolerance and interdependence through the design of a curriculum and a learning environment conducive to academic study and fostering understanding of the diversity of beliefs, attitudes and perspectives. Woolf Institute Summer School will offer courses related to three themes: Region, Migration and Society.

Communiquer sans stéréotype de sexe : guide pratique

S’obstiner à appeler une femme « madame le Directeur » plutôt que « madame la Directrice », réduire les femmes à leur corps dans les publicités, n’inviter que des hommes à la tribune au motif qu’il n’y aurait pas de «femmes expertes" ...

Dans le langage, les images ou l’organisation d’événements, la communication peut au quotidien renforcer l’effacement des femmes et les stéréotypes. Loin d’être anecdotique, la communication impacte nos représentations. Plutôt que d’alimenter le sexisme, nous pouvons passer à l’action en nous assurant d’une communication plus inclusive et égalitaire.

Autour de 10 recommandations, ce guide pratique vous accompagne et vous outille pour convaincre autour de vous : foire aux arguments, références historiques, juridiques et bibliographiques, bons et mauvais exemples, chiffres clés et ressources en ligne.

Museums as places for intercultural dialogue: selected practices from Europe

For many years now, scholars, museologists, and members of source communities have been debating the contemporary relevancy of ethnographic collections and their appropriate use given their nineteenth century origins and association with Western colonialism. In the thirty pilot projects carried out in the framework of MAP for ID ... many innovative and unconventional ways participants are breathing new life into these and other types of collections and museums.

MAP for ID’s focus on working with immigrant and minority communities to facilitate more harmonious and just integration addresses a question of great social concern not only within European societies but also in the United States.

That is: How do we go beyond being multicultural societies to being ‘intercultural societies where a plurality of cultures cooperates in dialogue and in shared responsibility.

MAP for ID exemplifies the ongoing trend within the international museum community to democratize museums and make them more accessible to wider audiences, socially relevant, and responsive to their publics’ changing needs and interests. The initiative underscores the International Council of Museums’ definition of a museum as an institution ‘in the service of society and its development.’ It is one thing, however, to accept this axiom and quite another to put it into actual practice. The MAP for ID projects provide us with concrete models of how to utilise the many resources of museums, artistic and cultural organisations to serve contemporary social needs and interests.
