Professors Brett Neilson and Ned Rossiter recently received news of the success of a Humboldt University KOSMOS Summer University grant (opens in a new window)entitled 'Investigating Logistics: Lifestyles, Migration, the Common(s)' in which they are listed as international partners. Spearheaded by Humboldt's Manuela Bojadžijev (opens in a new window)and funded at EUR 161K, the grant will support the continuation of the successful summer school series staged by Humboldt University's Institute of European Ethnology. Previous summer schools in this series have been Teaching the Crisis: Geographies, Methodologies, Perspectives (opens in a new window)(2013) and Expanding the Margins: Migration, Mobilities, Borders (opens in a new window)(2014). As part of this program ICS Adjunct Associate Professor Sandro Mezzadra will serve as KOSMOS Fellow at Humboldt's newly founded Berlin Institute for Integration and Migration Research (opens in a new window)for a year beginning October 2015. The recognition of UWS as a strategic collaborator by Humboldt University is a significant step ahead for ICS's program of international engagement. Other international partners on this KOSMOS grant are the University of Bologna and Duke University.
