Vacancy: PhD-candidate “Urban Media Engagement” (EUR)

The project asks if and how young people construct an urban identity from their creative media practices. We build on two strands of urban research that claim, respectively, that creativity is a strong driver of a shared urban culture and that urban identities are less divisive and more inclusive than national ones. Our further integration of media research about active audience behaviour leads to a multidisciplinary perspective that reveals the potential of urban identities to exceed traditional divisions among youth based on national and ethnic backgrounds.

Call for participation: Digital Methods Summer School 2017

26 June – 7 July 2017
Gillian Rose employs the term visual methodologies for “researching with visual materials” (2016). Iconography, semiotics, framing analysis and multimodal analysis are among the approaches that may be applied to digital materials. One may also ask, does the online make a difference to the study of the visual? That is, with which approaches is the image considered primarily, or secondarily, as a digital object embedded in online media? Apart from the change in the setting of the object, there may also be methods that emerge from the new media, engines and platforms. What kinds of so-called ‘natively’ digital methods can be repurposed productively for visual analysis? How to make use of the Google’s reverse image search?
