PhD scholarship in the field of The history of cross-media with focus on the world wide web and its relation to one or more other media types, primarily radio or tv.
The Graduate School of Humanities, Aarhus Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University, in collaboration with The State and University Library, invites applications for a 3-year PhD scholarship in The history of cross-media with focus on the world wide web and its relation to one or more other media types, primarily radio or tv starting on 1 September 2011. Candidates who are awarded the scholarship must commence their PhD programme on 1 September 2011.
The PhD scholarship will be financed by the Aarhus Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University, and The State and University Library.
The PhD scholarship is advertised within the field of the historical interplay of media. Scholarship about the interplay of media (cross-mediality) is an emerging field within media studies, but especially the number of historical cross-media studies is very limited. With this PhD-project we wish to further historical studies of the interplay of media. Despite the fact that the history of cross-mediality is by and large unchartered, the phenomenon itself has a long history, and with the advent of new media types within the last 10-15 years (eg. internet and mobile media) the media interplay has grown. The project must be historical and it should focus on one or more of the following points: theoretical and methodological issues, institutions, production, content and forms of expression, reception, technology, and social use. The project should benefit from the existing collections of media content at The State and University Library, primarily the national internet archive Netarkivet as well as the collections of radio and television. The State and University Library wants to further research projects which shed light on how research accross the librarie's media collections can be undertaken.
The PhD scholar must complete the studies in accordance with the valid regulations for the PhD degree programme, currently the Ministerial Order of 14 January 2008 on the PhD Programme at the Universities:http://www.phd.humaniora.au.dk/en/rulesandforms/degreeprog/phd_order.pdf
