Summer School: New Approaches and Methods for Research in Children’s Media
The Summer School: New Approaches and Methods for Research in Children’s Media will be held at the Academy of Sciences and Literature in Mainz (Germany) and aims at students interested in Children’s and YA-media in Germany and abroad. Numerous lectures and workshops taught by international experts and artists (such as Pei-Yu Chang, Maren Conrad, Dully & Dax, Ute Dettmar, Vanessa Joosen, Manuela Kalbermatten, Chris Kling, Gerhard Lauer, Johannes Mayer, Emer O'Sullivan) will provide new cultural studies’ perspectives on Children’s Media (e.g. Disability Studies and New Environmental Studies) with methods from the digital humanities.
Further details on the program can be found on the Summer School website: https://childrensmediasummerschool.com/programme/.
The welcome dinner at the Eulchen Brewery and excursions to Grimmwelt (Kassel) and the Klingspor Museum (Offenbach) provide opportunities to get to know each other. Meetings with staff from publishing houses, a German TV broadcaster and cultural institutions will introduce participants to the Rhine-Main area, being a book and cultural centre and provide various opportunities for networking.
