Book launch: Studying in the Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has traumatized many in Europe, but especially those in the border regions. The effects of bordering have caused a feeling of the end to a Europe without borders, where free circulation is no longer possible. This is especially the case for young people and students of the Erasmus generation who all profit from the possibility of mobility.

What sort of experiences were typical among university students in border regions throughout the period of the COVID-19 pandemic? Many of the students have no experience yet of a "normal" university course, of a tutorial or even a lecture at their university. With this book, Katarzyna Stokłosa and Birte Wassenberg, decided to give a platform to their students at the University of Southern Denmark (the German-Danish border region) and the University of Strasbourg (the Franco-German border region). The students write about their studies and life during the circumstances of COVID-19.

The book launch is part of the conference: The German-Danish border region: the best practice example for other European border regions?
of  the Centre for Border Region Studies (Centre for Border Region Studies) (18.- 19.11.2021)
