The ECREA European Media and Communication Doctoral Summer School 2019
brings together members of the European research community in order to

The main emphasis of this summer school is not on a particular theme,
but on providing structural and individuated PhD-support for young
European scholars, through a variety of working forms, including
feedback seminars, workshops, and lectures. The summer school aims to
provide a supportive international setting where doctoral students can
present their ongoing work, receive feedback on their PhD-projects from
international experts and meet students and academics from other
countries, establishing valuable contacts for the future.
WHO CAN APPLY
The summer school is open to the full variety of academic work in the
broad field of communication and media studies. All PhD projects within
the field of communication and media studies are welcomed.

sufficient understanding and ability to express oneself in this language
The total number of students will be limited to 45.

procedure in order to apply for these grants.
University of Tartu (The Institute of Social Studies) acknowledges the
Summer School activities with 10 ECTS credits for the participation in
the full programme (including the supplementary activities).
A selection of the best papers based on the PhD projects presented in
the summer school will be published in a special issue of journal
Mediální studia/Media Studies, published by the Faculty of Social
Sciences, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic.

2. a 400 word abstract of the PhD project
The deadline for submitting the application is March 15, 2019.
Notification of acceptance will be sent during the last week of March 2019.
Students whose abstracts are accepted will be expected to provide the
following documents and information in the second phase:
A 10-page (3000 words) paper on their PhD project as a whole. The 10
page paper should be a report of the student's ongoing doctoral research
and not a conventional conference paper or a report of findings. Rather,
it is expected that the student will briefly present the focus of the
research and then take up aspects of the research process:
methodological, theoretical and practical issues on which he/she would
like to receive feedback. (Deadline: June 15)
A set of questions (maximum 1 page) with questions or problems that
students would like to be discussed during the workshops. This one page
needs to be part of the same Word/PDF file that also contains the
10-page paper. (Deadline: June 15)
Based on the abstracts and titles of other student papers, everyone is
expected to choose up to 3 papers they would be interested in being a
respondent. This preference will be taken into consideration while
setting up student working groups. (Deadline June 20)
By the start of the Summer School, each student has to prepare a
10-minute seminar presentation covering the main points of their work.
Each student is also expected to actively participate in the discussions
of their own and other people's work. In order to ensure maximum
benefits of the seminars, everyone will have to read other participants
papers before the Summer School begins.
