Within DIREPA project Yekaterina Aleshina participates in Summer School in Bucharest
The Summer School was arranged within the project “Discourses and Representation of Europe’s Past in Online Media” (DIREPA), which is financed by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany, the German-French Institute and the University of Sergy-Pontoise (France).
Managing the project on behalf of PSU Yekaterina Aleshina participated in workshops and master-classes conducted at the National University of Political Studies and Public Administration in Bucharest (Romania) on 8 – 12 July 2019. English and French were the working languages of the Summer School.
The programme of the school included the speeches delivered by French, German, and Polish researchers (Luciana Radu-Gahi, Hedwig Wagner, Yoanna Shilko-Kvas), who study media discourse from the historical perspective. The greater attention was devoted to interactive master classes of French scholars on applying data bases and digital mapping methods in linguistic studies. The participants discussed the issues of processing linguistic data and outlined the prospects of further work within the project.
Within DIREPA project, PSU team is represented by Yekaterina Aleshina, Head of the Department of Foreign Languages and Methods of Teaching Foreign Languages, by Tatiana Razuvaeva, Head of the Language and Examination Centre, Associate Professor of the Department of Foreign Languages and Methods of Teaching Foreign Languages and coordinator of cooperation between Penza State University and Flensburg institutions, and by Irina Voyevodina, Associate Professor of the Department of Foreign Languages and Methods of Teaching Foreign Languages.
Yekaterina Aleshina presented the performance of PSU team in collecting and processing media materials within the research project and featured the monograph “Representation of Europe’s Past in Online Media” / “Die Darstellung der Konfliktreichen Vergangenheit Europas in Online-Medien” by H. Wagner and Ye. Aleshina, edited by I. Shaplo, T. Razuvaeva. The edition generated much interest among the Summer School participants.
This monograph results from collaborative working together with the German colleagues from the European University of Flensburg (Germany) supported by the grant of the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.
