Europe-China Dialogue: Media and Communication Studies Summer School (Switzerland)

Europe-China Dialogue: Media and Communication Studies Summer School 2016
Lugano, Switzerland (July 4-10, 2016)

After the successful experience in 2014 and 2015, China Media Observatory of Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI) in cooperation with School of Journalism and Communication of Peking University, will operate the THIRD edition of Europe-China Dialogue: Media and Communication Studies Summer School from July 4 through July 10, 2016. For the first time, this summer school will be hosted in Europe (the first two were in China). In 2016 we will convene in Lugano, a beautiful city located in the Italian speaking region of Switzerland.

The program is open to the full variety of academic work from the field of communication and media studies for young scholars, PhD students, and master students who have strong academic interests. The summer school should especially interest scholars with a background in international communication studies, intercultural communication studies, Chinese/European media studies and culture/language studies. It aims to bring together researchers from Europe, China, the United States and other countries or regions in order to debate contemporary issues in media, communication, political economy and cultural studies in the background of a new world power structure in the making.

Inspired by the ECREA Doctoral Summer School, this summer school will bring together highly qualified and well-respected professors from Europe, China and the United States. These scholars will present and discuss their recent research and engage participants in a highly supportive international setting where young scholars can also present their own ongoing work, receive feedback on their current or future research projects from international experts, and meet students and academics from other countries, establishing valuable contacts for the future.

The deadline for the abstract submission is May.1 2016, and there will be only 20 seats available this summer. Please find more details about the summer school in English and Chinese.

All the submissions should be sent to China Media Observatory.
