The DFG priority research program 1505 "Mediatized Worlds" says Goodbye
After six years of successful research, the official funding period of the priority program will end by September 30th, 2016
By September 30th 2016, the official six-year funding period of the DFG priority program 1505 "Mediatized Worlds" will come to an end. The priority program has been coordinated by Prof. Friedrich Krotz at the Centre for Media, Communication and Information Research (ZeMKI), University of Bremen. During the last six years, 33 research projects at 18 different universities have successfully been researching various aspects of the connections between media change and the transformations of culture and society. An overview of the conceptual framework, the research projects and the research activities of the priority program can be found at our homepage.
Furthermore, the blog of the priority program will remain active beyond the end of the official funding period.
Central findings of the priority program are outlined in the German language volume Mediatisierung als Metaprozess: Transformationen, Formen der Entwicklung und die Generierung von Neuem edited by Friedrich Krotz, Cathrin Despotović und Merle-Marie Kruse, which will be released at the end of the year by Springer VS. A number of monographs by some of the research projects as well as collective edited volumes of the priority program have been published already, as can be gathered from the homepage. Moreover, several projects within the priority program are also working on specific monographs, which present their research in detail. The blog will report on upcoming releases.
