Call for Participants
ECREA Summer School 2016

We are happy to invite you to participate in the ECREA European Media and Communication Doctoral Summer School 2016 that will take place at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milan, Italy, from July 25 to August 5, 2016.

THE FOCUS
The ECREA European Media and Communication Doctoral Summer School 2016 brings together members of the European research community in order to debate contemporary issues in media, communication and cultural studies. The main emphasis of this summer school is not on a particular theme, but on providing structural and individuated PhD-support for young European scholars, through a variety of working forms, including feedback seminars, workshops, and lectures. The summer school aims to provide a supportive international setting where doctoral students can present their ongoing work, receive feedback on their PhD-projects from international experts and meet students and academics from other countries, establishing valuable contacts for the future.
