This amazing program explores the relationship between conflict and the formation of national identities in the unique cultural setting of Istria, the northwestern peninsula of Croatia. Istria is an ideal location for the program not only because of the beautiful location of the peninsula, surrounded by the Adriatic Sea, but also because Istria is a “border zone” with a melange of Slavic, Italian and Germanic cultural traditions. Students will be based in Rovinj, a postcard-perfect city on the shores of the Adriatic. Class will be held in a classroom in the local Center for Historical Research.
