Contribute to the RMeS programme: Call for Activities

Vacancy PhD Council

RMeS is the research community for Media Studies scholars in the Netherlands. We offer courses to PhD students and RMA students, but also support activities of staff members. RMeS provides financial and logistic support for initiatives that contribute to the field and our educational program.

With this Call for Activities, we reach out to all RMeS members — staff members at the different universities, but also PhD candidates and RMa students — to contribute their ideas, research interests and expertise to the RMeS programme. Do you want to organize a workshop, masterclass, conference, a lecture or even a full course for our RMa students? Please, get in touch with your ideas, suggestions, questions or proposals for academic events!

Applications (short description of the project and estimation of expenses, approx. 500 words) should be sent to As RMeS aims to foster collaboration within and beyond the RMeS community, we will make up to € 1000,- (depending on the format) available as budget for promising initiatives. Applications should contain an educational component so students can obtain ECTS.
