With Laurel Brake (London), Ellen Gruber Garvey (New Jersey), Matthew Philpotts (Liverpool), Madleen Podewski (Berlin), Geoffrey Belknap (National Media Museum Bradford) and Members of the DFG Research Unit 2288 ‘Journal Literature’
The search for coherence is a fundamental mode of reception, just as the reading process of periodicals is structured by interruptions. With a systematic focus that encompasses the full range of periodical media formats, genres, and periods, the International Summer School investigates these mechanisms of seriality and will thereby shed light on structural similarities (and differences) across boundaries of genre, time, and media formats. Researchers in periodical studies at an early stage of their careers (PhD students and post-doctoral scholars up to five years after their PhD) are welcome to present their research projects and work together with peers and renowned experts on methodological and theoretical approaches concerning patterns of coherence and interruption in periodicals.
