Media history from the margins

The summer seminar aims to rethink media history from the margins and to place at the center of our attention neglected, alternative, or censured media texts, uses, and technologies. By shifting the discussion from hegemonic actors, dominant institutions, and successful mass media to the fringes of media history, it pursues the double objective of rewriting media history into media histories, and of opening a space to rethink historiographical practices and methods.

Summer School "Visual Media Analysis: News Photos, Text-Image Relations and Multimodal Discourses/Frames"

This course teaches you the skills to interpret news images and related sentences, captions and headlines. What are the possible meanings of newspaper cartoons, magazine covers or photos in the (social) media? How can the juxtaposed texts affect the meaning potential of these images? And what does it take to develop a coherent analytical framework and a decent structure for your paper? In a step by process with daily presentations, you address these questions. You write a paper in which you use a qualitative method to analyse news photos or media representations with both visual and textual elements.

International Conference on Child Rights in Digital Age

This conference seeks to unpack the ways digital media intersect both positively and negatively with children’s rights today and to reflect on how children’s rights might provide a meaningful counterpoint from which to consider the role of ‘the digital’ in advancing human rights more broadly. To catalyze the debates, we now call for papers *analyzing key dilemmas or tensions shaping children’s rights in the digital age.

Journalism, media and surveillance

The Internet and social media create new opportunities for surveillance. Governments, military organisations, intelligence agencies, corporations, market researchers, and advertisers have the capacity to erase privacy and reshape the conditions of human autonomy. Mass media representations can, potentially, legitimise or delegitimise contemporary surveillance practices. These developments threaten journalistic practice just as they create new opportunities for counter-surveilling institutions of power. How then, should we understand the interrelationships which conjoin journalism, media and surveillance? Conference participants will, we hope, respond to this general question.

Stockholm, Sweden

International Academic Conference "Manga, Comics and Japan: Area Studies as Media Studies"

The conference will focus on three aspects:
(1) “Japan as Mangaesque,” related to the highly mediatized nature of contemporary Japanese culture, i.e. its media ecology, highlighting global and local mediations rather than national branding;
(2) “Manga Pedagogy,” applying the mediatic perspective to methodologies of Manga Studies within university programs and academic scholarship; and
(3) “Manga as Comics,” foregrounding media specifity in relation to comics and thereby extending the scope of Manga Studies beyond that of a primarily Japan-related field.

Attendance is free, but pre-registration is required for non-speakers. Please send an email with the heading “Manga conference, pre-registration” to either jberndt@su.se or ida.kirkegaard@su.se by 20 August 2018.
