context and aim

The Programme proposes each year collective projects in partnership with local, Swiss or international institutions, communities or associations. These projects are an opportunity for the students to discover unfamiliar territories and to engage in research that are complementary or peripheral to their own study field and to create interpersonal relationships with their collaborators. Collaborative projects reach issues concerning education, international relations, intergenerational exchanges, gender politics, migration, emerging cultures of sustainability, climate change, disability. The projects are realized in different format such as conferences, displays, installations, publications, dialogical devices, posters, and other hybrid forms.

The conference is completed by a workshop on the Economy of Attention at CCC, organized by Yves Citton in collaboration with Aurélien Gamboni, Anne-Julie Raccoursier, Laura von Niederhäusern, Igor Galligo. The students present one minute films on the topic and in cooperation with Yves Citton writes short texts to contribute to a special issue of Multitudes on Objets Valuateurs Non-Identifiés, under the title: « Coalition Circulaire des Connectivités ».

The workshop is paired up with a session of the CCC Pre-Doctorate/PhD Seminar on 7, 8 and 9 April 2014, in Geneva.

Freire/Illich in Geneva
For a critical and political practice of pedagogy

The project proposed by microsillons engages to study a historical seminar organized by Paulo Freire and Ivan Illich for the World Council of Churches, in Geneva, on the 6th of September 1974.

During their research, the students meet a few protagonists of the event and read a selection of texts by Freire and Illich. Their mission is to realize a five minutes video on one of the issues raised by Freire and Illich.
