ECLA European College of Liberal Arts Names David Durst to Head International Summer University 2007
David Durst is a graduate of Colgate University (New York) and the University of Tubingen (M.A., Ph.D), and has taught in the philosophy department at AUBG since 1994. As this will be his fourth summer at the ECLA International Summer University, Professor Durst is thoroughly familiar with the special challenges and rewards of the ISU. His research focuses primarily on 19th and 20th Century continental aesthetic and political thought and he has published widely in the field.
Laurent Boetsch, President of ECLA, remarks that “ECLA is especially fortunate to be able to count on the experience and talent of David Durst to direct the 2007 ISU and to continue in the footsteps of Theodor Paleologu. We have an especially rich programme to offer this summer and are grateful to David for his enthusiastic willingness to organize and oversee its direction.”
This summer’s course, “The Mantle of the Prophet: Demons, Saints and Terrorists”, begins on July 13th and will explore texts, films, and images around six themes related to Dostoyevsky’s Demons. The deadline for applications for the ISU is April 3rd.
