Challenges of Media Anthropology: Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies 2017
Challenges of Media Anthropology
Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies
Bauhaus-Universität Weimar—Internationales Kolleg für Kulturtechnikforschung und Medienphilosophie
Princeton University—German Department
Weimar, June 11–17, 2017
The Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies—a collaboration between Bauhaus-Universität Weimar (Internationales Kolleg für Kulturtechnikforschung und Medienphilosophie, IKKM) and Princeton University (German Department)—returns to Weimar in 2017 for its seventh installment. This year’s session will be concerned with the dynamics at work between the forms and practices of human being on the one hand and media operations and orderings on the other. Interested in far more than the mere study of media appropriation in different cultures or media usage by various disciplines, the summer school will focus on the co-agency and co-reflexivity of media and human existence, a commonality that renders impossible any division of the latter pair as separate entities.
The summer school will be directed by Lorenz Engell (Weimar) and Thomas Y. Levin (Princeton). The faculty will include Jane Bennett (Baltimore), Elisabeth Bronfen (Zürich), Beatriz Colomina (Princeton), Erin Manning/Brian Massumi (Montreal), Avital Ronell (New York), Christiane Voß (Weimar) and others.
The Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies invites applications internationally from outstanding doctoral candidates working in media studies and related fields such as film studies, literary studies, philosophy, art history, architecture, sociology, politics, the history of science and visual culture.
All application materials should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and must be received by January 1st, 2017.
Katharina Rein (Weimar), William Stewart (Princeton)
