An Eminent Historian, Founder member of the TEMA+ Consortium and Professor of the Institute of World History, CUFA, Luďa Klusáková Passed Away
With deep regret, we announce that in the early morning on 8 April 2020, our beloved colleague and TEMA+ Scientific Coordinator, Prof. PhDr. Luďa Klusáková, CSc. passed away after a severe illness. She worked at the Faculty of Arts, Charles University, for more than 40 years and her endeavour significantly contributed to the forming of the Institute of World History, its scientific and pedagogical accomplishments and expansion of international contacts. Prof. Klusáková graduated from two programmes, History and French, at CUFA. Briefly, she worked as a research assistant at Archive of Charles University; from 1978 until the present, she worked at CUFA. In 2000, she became the director of Seminary of World and Comparative History. She was expertly focused on the comparative study of cities’ modernization, their image in culture, and the use of cultural heritage and history as a strategy of local and regional development. She contributed to the Institute’s engagement in eminent European research and educational projects, like our TEMA and TEMA+ Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programmes. The French Government awarded her with the Order of Merit in Education, Science and Culture Chevalier de l´ordre des palmes académiques. Between 2010-2012, she was the President of the European Association for Urban History. In 2019, she was appointed the Foreign Member of Finnish Academy of Sciences for her exceptional scientific merits. She was a person that with her unceasing energy repeatedly proved her research and organizational abilities, yet at the same time, she maintained a human and helpful approach to her colleagues and also students. She is dearly missed by all members of the TEMA+ programme, her students, the faculty, academia, and by many foreign colleagues from all over the world, with whom she actively cooperated. Without her, the TEMA and TEMA+ programmes would not have been possible. Her memory and legacy will live on forever in our lives and in our hearts.
From TEMA to TEMA+
Heritage and Development is a renewed and developed version of the TEMA European Territories: Identity and Development Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) that has been launched in 2010, founded by the European Commission.
TEMA+ European Territories - Heritage and Development
TEMA+ is a two-year long (120 ECTS) bilingual (English and French) Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Course, coordinated from Eötvös Loránd University Budapest, in cooperation with the European Heritage Label (EHL) and different UNESCO organs. The mobility tracks of the students are divided among the coordinating university (Semester 1) and the four partner universities (École des Hautes en Sciences Sociales in Paris, University of Catania, Charles University, Prague and Université Laval, Quebec for Semester 2-3 and chosen individually for Semester 4 among the five universities). The consortium awards students with double or multiple degrees, all accredited on national level.
TEMA+ wishes to provide better understanding of the growing importance of cultural heritage in a European context by applying a multinational, interdisciplinary approach that none of the existing Master degrees in any European university can offer.
The application for the TEMA+ and for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship is open from November 7, 2019 until March 10, 2020. Application deadline for the TEMA+ as self-funded student is June 21, 2020. Self-funded students residing in Europe can apply until August 8, 2020. More information about the admission requirements.
Three student intakes, from 2018 until 2020, will be funded and during this time, prestigious Erasmus Mundus scholarships might be awarded to the best students coming from all over the world. Application deadline for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship for intake 2020-2021 is February 23, 2020. Several other scholarships are available for candites.
