Objectiv / Zielsetzung

  • The participants are familiar with different methods of cultural and social sciences for the analysis of audiovisual media formats.
  • They are able to critically examine the potential of individual methods with regard to their respective research questions and to select suitable methods for their own work.

Content / Inhalt

The two-semester seminar introduces fundamental concepts of media theory and media research. A first general overview of theories and research methods of the cultural and social sciences is complemented by the detailed, practical examination of individual methods. Among others, the (formalistic) film analysis as well as socio-scientific and ethnographic methods of observing, documenting and interrogating are being tested. The focus is always on which methods can be used productively for which research interests.
