Założenia (opisowo):

The basic skills in cultural anthropology and experience in conducting fieldwork are appreciated but not required. The participants of the course should have sufficient skills in the fields that are connected to their own projects. They should be also ready to participate in a fieldwork stay in Wilamowice, or alternatively, to independently conduct their project.

Skrócony opis:

Wilamowice, a town situated in southern Poland, houses the endangered Germanic language, Wymysorys. The proposed class has two basic objectives. Firstly, they are supposed to familiarize students with the language and culture of Wilamowice, which is being revitalized by the members of the local community, for several years also supported by the staff of the Faculty of “Artes Liberales”. Secondly, they are to prepare course participants to undertake research and social initiatives in cooperation with local communities that are based on a partner, non-colonial relations. In this edition of the course the issue of museums will be of special importance.

The course structure facilitates these goals. During the “classroom” part of the course, students will gain insight into the contexts of Wilamowice. The semester culminates in fieldwork (21 hours over 3 days) in Wilamowice, enabling students to conduct their participatory micro-research projects."

Pełny opis:

The aim of the course is to prepare its participants to independently conduct fieldwork based on the principles of Participatory Action Research. Students will be familiarized with the methodological and ethical aspects of field research. The concept of participatory research will be introduced. A special emphasis will be placed on cooperation with small communities and aspects of interdisciplinarity in research practice.

Participants of the course will learn about the history and culture of Wilamowice. During the course, the basics of the Wymysorys language will be taught. Part of the classes will be devoted to issues in the field of anthropology of things, museology, and revitalization of endangered languages, thanks to which students will acquire basic competencies preparing them to help the local community of Wilamowice with issues which currently are of the big importance to them.

The second part of the course will be devoted to the preparation of original projects related to cultural revitalization by course participants. They will correspond to their personal scientific interests and meet the criterion of interdisciplinarity. The projects will be regularly consulted and refined. During the individual meetings, the lecturers will discuss their content, but also will provide some practical tips, which will help to successfully carry out the projects. An individual approach in this phase of the course will allow for the best possible preparation of students for research in Wilamowice. The culmination of this phase will be a class during which refined ideas of the projects will be presented to other participants and possibly to representatives of the community of Wilamowice.

The scope of projects is not limited as long as it is approved by the local community. Thus, the projects may concern really various issues, for example, human-nature relations in local epistemology, relations between biodiversity and multilingualism; usage of theater and art as tools of cultural and linguistic revitalization; creation of digital humanities tools supporting documentation and teaching of Wymysorys language; methods of dealing with trauma and work on identity; edition of historical, archival documents on Wilamowice; designing and exhibiting a museum exhibition, etc. The last activity will be especially promoted as the museum in Wilamowice is going to start operating in 2024.

At the end of the semester, fieldwork in Wilamowice will take place. This phase of the course will take approximately three days (21 hours), including weekend. During the stay in Wilamowice, participants of the course, in cooperation with the local community and supervised by the lecturers will conduct their projects, developed throughout the semester. The effects of this work will constitute a basis for the final grading. Alternatively, students may carry out an individual project, which scope will be discussed and agreed upon by the lecturers and representatives of the local community during remote meetings.

In principle, the projects should be related to the personal research interests of students, be consistent with the research fields of the Faculty of "Artes Liberales” and respond to the needs of the local community of Wilamowice.

The lecturers will do their best to acquire funding for a complete or at least partially covering the costs of staying in Wilamowice
