Mediatisation and Mediality of History in the Modern and Contemporary Era | LX Study Week
FBK Aula Grande
Fondazione Bruno Kessler - Polo delle Scienze Umane e sociali
The term “mediatisation” here refers to a series of long term historical processes, characterized by a growing permeability of society to conditioning by means of communication, and the phenomena of self-perception that society develops through the media. This involves a multidimensional analysis of changes in the media in the context of the socio-political and cultural transformations that have typified the early modern and contemporary era. Dealing with the theme of mediatisation from a historical perspective makes it possible to reconstruct the development of the media through all dimensions (economic, technical, cultural, political) by analysing the content, strategies of use, and the effects the media have produced in different historical contexts.
The Italian-German Historical Institute will offer 10 grants to cover board and lodgings expenses for the days of the conference.
Participation to the Study week is open to doctoral and post-doctoral students of any nationality, who have ongoing research projects in the broad field of the history of media or on the relationship between media and history. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to discuss their research in a stimulating context of scientific exchange and with experts in the field.
Among confirmed keynote speakers: Gabriele Balbi, professor of media studies at the Università della Svizzera Italiana, Simone Derix, chair of contemporary history at the University of Duisburg-Essen, Paola Molino, associate professor of Early Modern History at the University of Padova, Raffaella Perin, chair of History of Cristianity at the Università Cattolica Brescia.
