Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies Summer 2014

CfA: “Practices, Procedures, Recursions: The Reality of Media?”

Fourth Annual Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies

Princeton, June 15—21, 2014

The 2014 session of the Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies is devoted to

approaches in media analysis whose focus are the operations, procedures, and practices

that constitute cultures. In distinction to approaches whose goal is a comprehensive media

theory, the fourth Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies will map out what

can be called the “practical turn“ in media analysis.

 

The Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies invites applications from

outstanding doctoral candidates throughout the world in media studies and related fields

such as film studies, literary studies, philosophy, art history, architecture, sociology, politics,

the history of science and visual culture. All application materials should be sent by email

to ssms@Princeton.EDU and must be received by November 25, 2013. Please consult the

Application Information page at http://german.princeton.edu/ssms/ for required

documents.
