Online meeting (Zoom)
Are you a graduate or doctoral student, post-doctoral researcher, or early career 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 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.
Participants are expected to give a short introduction to their project and to prepare some central questions for discussion. IAMHIST Council members will engage with your project and discuss sources and strategies for developing it further.
The master class is a small-scale event that aims to offer emerging scholars and media professionals an opportunity to engage with leaders in the field in a less formal setting than an academic conference. The master class includes a seminar on academic publishing. There is no charge for attendance.
To apply for this event, send a 300-word proposal of your project and a short biography to Professor Katharina Niemeyer (email@example.com) and Professor Tobias Hochscherf (firstname.lastname@example.org). Deadline for proposals is 10 September 2021.
David H. Culbert (1943-2017) was a diligent media historian. More than anything else, his scholarly interest was the research on the history of propaganda, information policy and mass persuasion. He was John L. Loos Professor of History at Louisiana State University, an active IAMHIST Council member and editor of the Historical Journal of Film, Radio, and Television from 1992 to 2012.
The prize is awarded on behalf of the Culbert family for outstanding works looking at the history of ways in which media, public opinion, politics and diplomacy interact. It is awarded to monographs and anthologies on these topics that were published within the last four years in English. The deadline for submissions is 1 November 2021. Please send a print copy only of the book to all three jury members listed below. The $2,000 prize will be awarded at the 2022 IAMHIST conference (scheduled to take place from 12-14 July 2022 in Kiel, Germany). The prize has been established by an endowment from Lubna Culbert. The first winner of the prize was Benjamin G. Martin with The Nazi-Fascist New Order for European Culture (Harvard University Press, 2016) in 2020.
Please send a print copy of the book to each of the jury members:
