Doctoral Summer School 2018
ECREA European Media and Communication Doctoral Summer School 2018
Milan, Italy, from July 19 to July 27, 2018
DEADLINE: April 15, 2018
The ECREA European Media and Communication Doctoral Summer School 2018 brings together members of the European research community to this summer school in order to debate contemporary issues in media, communication and cultural studies. The main emphasis of this summer school is not on a particular theme, but on providing structural and individuated PhD-support for young European scholars, through a variety of working forms, including feedback seminars, workshops, and lectures. The summer school aims to provide a supportive international setting where doctoral students can present their ongoing work, receive feedback on their PhD-projects from international experts and meet students and academics from other countries, establishing valuable contacts for the future.
International director: Pille Pruulmann-Vengerfeldt
Programme directors: Fausto Colombo, Simone Tosoni
Summer School coordinators: Maria Francesca Murru, Laura Peja
