Mediatisation and Mediality of History in the Modern and Contemporary Era | LX Study Week
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.
Young scholars together with keynote speakers will present and discuss their research in a stimulating context of scientific exchange.
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.
