International Workshop: "Transnational Media Histories"

Within the cooperation project Transnational Media Histories between the Macquarie University in Sydney and Universität Hamburg, the Research Centre Media History is organizing an international workshop at Universität Hamburg on 12 and 13 September 2018.

The workshop brings together media and communication researchers from Sydney, Shanghai and Hamburg. It will also discuss current events and the status of the cooperation project between the Centre for Media History at Macquarie University in Sydney, the Research Centre Media History at Universität Hamburg and the Hans-Bredow-Institut since 2015. The event is also dedicated to the new research field "Communicating Port Cities". This topic will be at the centre of the cooperation with colleagues of the Center of Information and Communication Studies at Fudan University in Shanghai in 2019 and 2020.

About the Project

Within the cooperation project “Transnational Media History”, the Research Centre Media History at Universtität Hamburg / Hans-Bredow-Institut and the Centre for Media History at Macquarie University in Sydney work together since 2015 in order to research a history of media beyond national boundaries. The focus lies on the frequent exchange of scientists in the fields of media and communication history between Hamburg and Sydney. Joint workshops, conferences and research projects will take place. The starting point of this cooperation is the research approach of “Entangled Media Histories”, drawing upon and contributing to a “histoire croisée”, a connected history or Verflechtungsgeschichte in the field of media and communication history.
