About

The Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies provides advanced training in the study of media and cultural techniques. Focusing on one special topic annually, it affords a select group of fourteen graduate students the opportunity to work with distinguished international scholars from all fields of media studies in an intimate and highly focused context, as well as a platform for dialogue with other doctoral students from around the world working in similar or related fields. In addition to the seminar sessions, workshops and lectures, the summer school program includes opportunities for extended one-on-one consultations with the faculty.

Five morning seminars are led by the directors of the summer school, respectively. Afternoon sessions taught by the summer school faculty provide further opportunities for interaction and participation. A series of evening events including invited lectures and film screenings explore other facets of the summer school’s topic.

Participants will receive a reader with texts and material for the seminars. The working language of the summer school is English.
