Communicating Port Cities

Communicating Port Cities

How to explore ‘communicating port cities’ in three continents – this was the topic of the 'Transnational Media Histories'-workshop 2018.

The event took place from 12 to 13 September 2018 at Universität Hamburg, a workshop within the 'MQ-FU-HAM Trilateral Strategic Partnership' between Universität Hamburg, Macquarie University in Sydney and Fudan University in Shanghai. It was not the first meeting of the cooperative project ‘Transnational Media History’, but it was the kickoff-workshop for future plans in 2019 and 2020. Colleagues from the Centre for Media History in Sydney, from the School of Journalism in Shanghai, and from the Research Centre Media History at Universität Hamburg and Hans-Bredow-Institut successfully started this joint work.

Enjoy the short workshop video and watch how PhD candidates, professors, researchers, museum and PR managers discussed achievements in the field of transnational media and history and how they made new proposals for research on port cities.
