Students are familiar with Oberlausitz´s history. They can profitably combine historical knowledge with current site conditions.

Focal points are the Sorbian minority.  Mining and open-cast lignite mining, excavated villages and recultivated landscapes, socio-economic and ecological structural change, socio-natural spaces and regional identities, borders and (forced) migrations, changing political systems, political justice and prosecution by the Stasi.

Local guided tours, presentations of the course instructor as well as of the students. The latter will be prepared in the accompanying course (645302).
