Media Subjects: How Does Media Address the Individual?

Princeton, NJ, June 16-21, 2024

A collaborative summer school between Princeton University’s Department of German and the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar Faculty of Media.

The Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies returns to Princeton in 2024 for its tenth installment. The 2024 session will be devoted to re-considerations of the ways media addresses, formats, and brings about “media subjects.” How do new media phenomena require a reworking of older paradigms of the relationship between media and subjects? Might they suggest new paradigms altogether? The 2024 Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies – which will be directed by Nikolaus Wegmann (Princeton) and Bernhard Siegert (Weimar) – will attempt to trade old against new conceptualizations of what can be called “media subjects”. We invite applications from outstanding doctoral students throughout the world 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.

The call for applications is available! (How to Apply section)
