Media Sociology Preconference 2018

Media sociology has long been a highly diverse field spanning many topics, methodologies, and units of analysis. It encompasses all forms of mass-mediated communication and expression, including news media, entertainment media, as well as digital ("new") and non-digital ("old") media. Outstanding research exists within the different subfields both within and beyond the discipline of sociology. Our aim is to create dialogue among these disparate yet complementary traditions.

Media history from the margins

The summer seminar aims to rethink media history from the margins and to place at the center of our attention neglected, alternative, or censured media texts, uses, and technologies. By shifting the discussion from hegemonic actors, dominant institutions, and successful mass media to the fringes of media history, it pursues the double objective of rewriting media history into media histories, and of opening a space to rethink historiographical practices and methods.

Summer School "Visual Media Analysis: News Photos, Text-Image Relations and Multimodal Discourses/Frames"

This course teaches you the skills to interpret news images and related sentences, captions and headlines. What are the possible meanings of newspaper cartoons, magazine covers or photos in the (social) media? How can the juxtaposed texts affect the meaning potential of these images? And what does it take to develop a coherent analytical framework and a decent structure for your paper? In a step by process with daily presentations, you address these questions. You write a paper in which you use a qualitative method to analyse news photos or media representations with both visual and textual elements.

International Conference on Child Rights in Digital Age

This conference seeks to unpack the ways digital media intersect both positively and negatively with children’s rights today and to reflect on how children’s rights might provide a meaningful counterpoint from which to consider the role of ‘the digital’ in advancing human rights more broadly.
