The China Media Observatory of the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI), in cooperation with School of Journalism and Communication, Peking University, will operate the fourth Europe-China Dialogue: Media and Communication Studies Summer School at Peking University between 10/07/2017 and 19/07/2017.
The program is open to the full variety of academic work from the field of communication and media studies for scholars in their early academic careers, PhD students and masters students who have strong academic interests. It aims to bring together researchers from Europe, China, and North America in order to debate contemporary issues in media, communication, political economy and cultural studies. This year, the Summer School is specifically themed to discuss the challenges posed by the digitalization of the media sphere and the new trends in global communication.
We will only enroll 30 student participants to the programme. The composition of selected students will be ideally (but not limited to) half from Chinese institutions and half from European and other institutions from other places of the world. Three ECTS will be granted to those students who participate in the entire program.
To apply: All participants are required to send an abstract (up to 500 words) of their research projects before 01/05/2017 to [email protected]. The confirmation of participant students will be sent by 10/05/2017, and the full-draft of research project should be sent before 15/06/2017.
