Human[i]ties Perspective 2011, a conference and professional networking event aimed at Erasmus Mundus students and alumni from Culture, Media and Communications studies will be held this year at the University of Hamburg, November 11th and 12th. This year’s event will attract between 30 and 40 participants. Upon completion of the event all participants will receive an official Certificate of Participation. The conference will take place over two days and include four themed sessions: three academic sections exploring, ‘Cultures & Identities’, ‘Communication & Democracy’, and ‘Crisis & Risk Communication’, and one session will focus on career paths.  Leading professors and professionals will speak on these topics, providing insight and inspiration into research lines and professional development ideas. The aim of Human[i]ties Perspective 2011 is to provide a forum of discussion and networking for young academics and professionals in the field of Culture, Media, and Communication.

Eligibility

The majority of participants will be from four core EM courses – MA Media, Communication & Cultural Studies; MA Journalism & Media within Globalization; MA Euroculture; and MA Crossways in European Humanities.  The participants will form the basis of an Erasmus Mundus Humanities network that will span the globe, enhance the exchange of information, and highlight career paths.  To further extend the potential networking, applications from other interested EM courses that run parallel or overlap these topics are, of course, also welcome. Participants who reside outside of Europe are welcome to apply if they can cover their own travel expenses.

Costs

Participation fee is 35€ for participants who need accommodation and 10€ for participants who don’t need accommodation. The participants who need accommodation will be provided with a free shared room in a hostel.  Light snacks and coffee will be provided during the breaks. A social programme will be organized, but delegates will be responsible for their own expenses. All Junior Speakers and 7 lucky participants will receive reimbursement of their travel expenses for up to 100€! Use this chance and apply early!
