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!
