Location: Volda University College, Norway
Are you a graduate or doctoral student, post-doc, or young professional currently working on a project in which you engage issues concerning historical film, radio or television or issues in media history? Are you interested in presenting your project to a small group of experts and peers? Then this master-class of the International Association for Media and History may be just what you are looking for. The master class deliberately has a broad scope, including any research in the field of media and history.
Participants are expected to give a short introduction to their project and to prepare some central questions for discussion. The group including participants as well as senior members of IAMHIST will engage with your project and discuss sources and strategies for developing it further.
The day is designed to be a small-scale networking event for emerging scholars and media professionals and an opportunity to engage with peers and leaders in the field in a less formal setting than an academic conference. There is no charge for attendance and lunch is included. Participants are expected to attend both the master class and the one-day conference (see below).
To apply for this event, send a 300-word proposal of your project and a one paragraph bio to IAMHIST President Leen Engelen (firstname.lastname@example.org). Deadline is 1 November 2021.
Travel stipends of max. 175 Euros are available for participants without institutional funding. Please indicate in your application whether you’d like to apply for this. The stipend is only transferrable via Paypal.
