HOW VIRTUAL IS REALITY?
We would like to call your attention to this year's Summer School "How
Virtual is reality?" (http://how-virtual-is-reality.eu/) held in Bremen
(Germany) from July 10 to July 19. The course is mainly addressed to
graduate and postgraduate students like Master students and PhD
candidates, but undergraduates with experience in the field are also
very welcome to apply!
As a cooperation of the University of Bremen, the University of
Oldenburg and the Jacobs-University (Bremen) the Summer course will
broach the issue of the relevance of new environments like "Second Life"
or "World of Warcraft" for nowadays culture and social life with special
focus on rituals and religions.
Instructed by more than 15 international teachers, the participants of
the Summer School will engage into the interdisciplinary study of
practical methods and theoretical approaches for the scientific handling
of ritual and media. The media will not only be subject to
methodological, theoretical and practical research and discussion but
will also serve as platform for academic exchange and teaching. After
this Summer School participants will be able to design and perform
research projects on religion in and within Virtual Worlds.
Please forward this information to everyone who might be interested in
the course! A banner and a poster will soon be available on the "Media"
section of the website.
We are looking forward to many interesting applications!
