We’ll get back to you in early March with more information on travel and accommodation. The nearest international airport is Hamburg (HAM).
  • All speakers and participants need to register by 15 March 2022 so we can guarantee that your paper will be programmed. We will announce a draft programme in early April.

The receptions will take place onboard a historic ferryboat and a local microbrewery founded by students in Kiel.

IAMHIST Master Class 2022

The International Association for Media and History and the Faculty of Media and Journalism, Volda University College, Norway


IAMHIST Master Class on Media and History

 Thursday, 13 January 2022 (online via Zoom, 14.00-16.30 CET)


Are you a graduate or doctoral student, post-doctoral researcher, or young professional currently working on a project in which you engage issues concerning historical film, radio or television or issues in media history? Are you interested in presenting your project to a small group of experts and peers? Then this master-class of the International Association for Media and History (IAMHIST) may be just what you are looking for. The master class deliberately has a broad scope, including any research in the field of media and history. As this is a pre-conference event for a one-day symposium on ‘visuals in conflict, protest, terror and war’, presentations on this area are particularly welcome.

Participants are expected to give a short introduction to their project and to prepare some central questions for discussion. The group including participants as well as senior members of IAMHIST will engage with your project and discuss sources and strategies for developing it further.

The day is designed to be a small-scale networking event for emerging scholars and media professionals and an opportunity to engage with peers and  leaders in the field in a less formal setting than an academic conference. There is no charge for attendance.

To apply for this event, please send a 300-word proposal of your project and a one paragraph biography to IAMHIST President Leen Engelen (leen.engelen@kuleuven.be). Deadline is 7 November 2021.
