学术信息两则:博士生暑期课程

以下是转发的两则学术信息,都是关于2009年的博士生暑期课程项目,地点分别是在荷兰和丹麦。

[题外话:在转贴信息前,也想问问OhMyMedia的读者们,你们觉得这种信息有必要贴吗?欧美学术界的信息分发渠道一直不错,通过各种学会、高校、邮件组的邮件列表,欧美的媒介与传播研究及有关学科的会议征稿、讲座活动、暑假学期等信息被送往每个订阅者。我一直觉得可能中国的研究者们也会对有关的信息感兴趣,但又总是想,是不是大家也已经通过各种方式得到有关信息了呢?此外,一些在欧洲的研讨会、暑假学期,对于身处中国的我们,如果没有经费支持,也就不太可能参与了。所以也借本文,了解一下研究生和青椒(青年教师)们的想法,欢迎留言。]

第一则:

We are very proud to present the first CAMCAS Summer Institute on Popular Culture and the City, which will be held at the Graduate School of Social Sciences at the University of Amsterdam, NL from July 7- 22, 2009.

Amsterdam is a vibrant city with a rich cultural-historical heritage, a substantial creative industry and a diverse cultural life. Its inhabitants are a colorful mix of different cultures and lifestyles. In short, Amsterdam is the perfect testing ground to study and to explore popular culture. We will examine theories and concepts on media, entertainment and popular culture in an urban setting and explain the different research methods used in media, cultural and urban studies. We will discuss how city life is represented in popular culture and how popular culture moulds and forms urban life. We will describe the different subcultures among urban youth and take a closer look at the creative industry and the music scene.

This Summer Institute offers students of various disciplines, but with an interest in media, cultural and urban studies, a great opportunity to study and to explore Amsterdam. The Institute is an intensive and active two-week summer programme that seeks to provide an interdisciplinary approach to the study of urban popular culture and to promote opportunities for international networking among participants.

Deadline for Applications is May 1st, 2009.

大好机会:博士生暑假学期——ICT的政治经济学

从邮件里收到一则信息,十分令人心动。但由于时间和精力所限,自己恐怕是无法前往了。将信息共享于此,希望能对谁有所帮助。

时间地点:26-31 August 2007 in Skagen, Denmark (童话般的国度!)

Topic of this Year: Next Generation Applications and Services

‘Next Generation Applications and Services’ is the theme of the 2007 PhD summer school on the Political Economy of ICT.

The focus of the 2007 summer school is on the new and upcoming developments of interactive media and applications, which are accessible and to which users can contribute on the various converging mobile and fixed platforms. Among the issues taken up are mobile media, including mobile TV, social computing/Web 2.0, and IPTV. The technology trends will be explored and the business potentials examined. Furthermore, the policy and regulatory issues relating to the development of new IP-based applications and services will be analysed, including the proposed EU directive on Audiovisual Media Services (AVMS) and copyright regulations.

The approach taken in this PhD course is multidisciplinary, which means that the development of next generation IP applications and services will be analysed from the view point of the interrelationships between technology developments and the economic and political developments relating to the markets for new mobile and fixed IP-based applications and services.

费用好像是300欧元包课程费用和食宿……真的很赞啊。对新媒体、互联网、web2.0、ICT、政治经济学感兴趣的学术青年们勿错过!顺道还可以去北欧旅游。
