RMeS Winter School 2012 – Media/History

RMeS Winter School 2012 – Media/History

The RMeS Winter School 2012 will discuss issues in Media History and Media Historiography in a series of seminars and workshop sessions for Research Master students and PhD students. For the seminar sessions students will receive reading assignments, for the workshop sessions they will prepare short papers relating their own research interest to the topic of the Winter School and the readings.

For participation in and preparation of the Winter School RMA and PhD students will receive 5 ECTS. To bring this in line with the modules of their respective home universities they can either do supplementary work assigned by the Winter School or do an individual assignment within their own program.
