After the successful experience in the past three years, the China Media Observatory of Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI) in cooperation with School of Journalism and Communication of Peking University, will operate the FOURTH edition of Europe-China Dialogue: Media and Communication Studies Summer School at Peking University between 10/07/2017 and 19/07/2017.
The program is open to the full variety of academic work from the field of communication and media studies for scholars at their early academic careers, PhD students and master students who have strong academic interests. It aims to bring together researchers from Europe, China, and North America in order to debate contemporary issues in media, communication, political economy and cultural studies. This year, the Summer School is specifically themed to discuss the challenges posed by the digitalization of the media sphere and the new trends in global communication.
Inspired from the ECREA Doctoral Summer School, this summer school aims to provide: a high qualified international setting where professors from Europe, China and the United States will present and discuss their updated research work; and a high supportive international setting where students participants can present their ongoing work, receive feedbacks on their current or future research projects from international experts and meet students and academics from other countries, establishing valuable contacts for the future.
We will only enroll 30 student participants to the program. The composition of selected students will be ideally (but not limited to) half from Chinese institutions and half from European and other institutions from other places of the world. 3 ECTS will be granted to those students who participated the whole program.
To apply: All participants are required to send an abstract (up to 500 words) of their research projects before 01/05/2017 to chinamediaobservatory [at] gmail [dot] com. The confirmation of participant students will be sent by 10/05/2017, and the full-draft of research project should be sent before 15/06/2017.
