How do Media and Cultural Change Outside of Europe?

20.09.2012
International Workshop on the change of media and culture at the University of Bremen

On September 28, 2012 the DFG Priority Program „Mediatized Worlds“ together with ZeMKI, the Centre for Media, Communication and Information Research of the University of Bremen organize a workshop focusing cultural changes through the digitalization and convergence of media from a non-European perspective.

Under the title „Media and Cultural Change Outside of Europe“ internationally renowed researchers come together to discuss research results and to learn from each other. Invited are contributors from the US, China, India, Japan, Mexico and Egypt as well as from Denmark, Switzerland and Germany.

Starting point of the workshop is the fact that the social life of people and culture we live in change through the current change of media. But what does culture mean from the perspective of North America, North Africa or Asia? And which role do media play in these processes of cultural change we can observe today? How can these changes theoretically grasp and grounded in empirical studies? These are some of the questions that will be raised and discussed in the workshop together with the invited researchers.

The workshop is organized by the DFG Priority Program „Mediatized Worlds“ which is coordinated by Prof. Dr. Friedrich Krotz at the ZeMKI, the Centre for Media, Communication and Information Research of the University of Bremen. The program started in October 2010 and it is based on the theory that the media communication amalgamates more and more with the everyday actions of the people. In this way different mediatized worlds will develop. Everyday life and social relationships as well as work and consumption but also public and policy are part of these worlds. Against this background twelve individual projects examine how these mediatized worlds emerge and which social changes we will have to expect.

The Workshop “Media and Cultural Change Outside of Europe” takes place on September 28, 2012 at the University of Bremen in the building "Cartesium" (Enrique-Schmidt-Straße 5, 28359 Bremen). After consultation with the organizers Journalists can participate in the workshop.

Im Focus: Computational high-throughput screening finds hard magnets containing less rare earth elements

Permanent magnets are very important for technologies of the future like electromobility and renewable energy, and rare earth elements (REE) are necessary for their manufacture. The Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM in Freiburg, Germany, has now succeeded in identifying promising approaches and materials for new permanent magnets through use of an in-house simulation process based on high-throughput screening (HTS). The team was able to improve magnetic properties this way and at the same time replaced REE with elements that are less expensive and readily available. The results were published in the online technical journal “Scientific Reports”.

The starting point for IWM researchers Wolfgang Körner, Georg Krugel, and Christian Elsässer was a neodymium-iron-nitrogen compound based on a type of...

Im Focus: Atomic precision: technologies for the next-but-one generation of microchips

In the Beyond EUV project, the Fraunhofer Institutes for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen and for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena are developing key technologies for the manufacture of a new generation of microchips using EUV radiation at a wavelength of 6.7 nm. The resulting structures are barely thicker than single atoms, and they make it possible to produce extremely integrated circuits for such items as wearables or mind-controlled prosthetic limbs.

In 1965 Gordon Moore formulated the law that came to be named after him, which states that the complexity of integrated circuits doubles every one to two...

Im Focus: Researchers demonstrate size quantization of Dirac fermions in graphene

Characterization of high-quality material reveals important details relevant to next generation nanoelectronic devices

Quantum mechanics is the field of physics governing the behavior of things on atomic scales, where things work very differently from our everyday world.

When current comes in discrete packages: Viennese scientists unravel the quantum properties of the carbon material graphene

In 2010 the Nobel Prize in physics was awarded for the discovery of the exceptional material graphene, which consists of a single layer of carbon atoms...

Im Focus: Transparent - Flexible - Printable: Key technologies for tomorrow’s displays

The trend-forward world of display technology relies on innovative materials and novel approaches to steadily advance the visual experience, for example through higher pixel densities, better contrast, larger formats or user-friendler design. Fraunhofer ISC’s newly developed materials for optics and electronics now broaden the application potential of next generation displays. Learn about lower cost-effective wet-chemical printing procedures and the new materials at the Fraunhofer ISC booth # 1021 in North Hall D during the SID International Symposium on Information Display held from 22 to 27 May 2016 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.
