A Last Dance in Saas-Fee

Here’s the news: The PACT Division is preparing to move locations and is preparing
for a last event in Saas Fee, Switzerland this coming June/July.

We have enjoyed the stunning scenery and pleasures of Saas Fee for twenty-four years, building a unique intellectual society over many successive generations.  Each class in its two-year course program has shaped this society in its special way in tandem with the participating professors.  The memories run deep, and as we discover from visiting alumni, they are poignant.

So, we are eager to contact all our alumni as we announce a Last Dance in Saas Fee. Come join us for a seminar or two (or even a whole session) at the Steinmatte site. We are offering a special rate for returning alumni and guests of $500 per course.  
Following a suggestion from one of our visiting alumni last year (class of 2008), we are thinking that this meeting could become the inspiring occasion for the creation of a record (photographs, texts, etc.) that would capture something of the shared experiences of the many cohorts.

Please be assured that PACT will continue after this Silver Anniversary session.  We have exciting plans that will soon be announced for Croatia (the island of Cres) and London.  So if there is place for a little melancholy, that Stimmung should give way to wistful celebration.  We actually see this moment as opening onto a quite promising new future.  By inviting the alumni back, we are renewing our society.  At the same time, the contributions from alumni will be important to us as we push forward.

The schedule of courses with participating professors for this 2023 Saas Fee session is now on our website, and precise seminar topics will be announced soon.
If you wish to apply or if you require more information, please contact Dr Nemanja Mitrović (nemanja.mitrovic@egs.edu).
