The Erasmus School of History Culture and Communication, the Erasmus Graduate School of Social Sciences and the Structured Doctoral Program of the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna (sdp - mdw) will jointly organize a summer school on diversity in arts, culture and media studies.

When: 2nd and 3rd of June 2022 – 9:30 to 17:30
