Summer School 2013

Hamburg/Germany, July 29 – August 2, 2013

  This year’s Summer School offered by the Research Center of Media  
and Communication at the University of Hamburg is picking up upon a  
crucial issue for current media development – a topic relevant to  
academia, media practice and media policy: in the age of digitisation,  
the landscape of media and communications is being increasingly  
influenced by phenomena that can be viewed as reappropriations of  
previously published media communications. This Summer School will  
pursue central questions about the kinds of reappropriated media  
communications that are being developed and the relationship between  
‘old’ and ‘new’ shaping them. This repurposing will be analysed from  
four different perspectives: repurposing as recombination, as  
reactualisation, as piracy and as plagiarism.


We invite PhD students from a wide range of disciplines, including  
Media and Communication Studies, Sociology, Literature, Linguistics,  
Economics and Law.

Depending on the number of participants, advanced master’s students  
will also be welcome.
