Workshop Bremen on ‘media generations’

To explore the notion of “user generation”, our research project was kindly offered a platform to share our thoughts with scholars working with the concept of “media generation”. Within the context of the DFG-funded research program Mediatisierte Welten / Mediatized Worlds, University of Bremen’s ZeMKI (Centre for Media, Communication and Informational Research) organized a workshop on October 24th in the heart of Bremen’s historic inner city. Bringing together communication scholars, sociologists and historians of media, the workshop aimed to explore the conceptual, methodological and heuristic usefulness of “generation” in historical and synchronous research on media appropriation.
