Open Society Institute and Faculty of Social Sciences in Ljubljana
announce
the Summer School 2000 in Ljubljana, from the 19th of June till the 2nd
of
July. The exposed theoretical problem of the Summer School is a
current
state of Media education in former Yugoslavia, which is going to be
analysed
from three different themes: Media and War, Children and War, Children
and
Media.

The Summer School's focus will be the argument that the former
Yugoslav
states are inside and outside themselves faced with a lack of
communication
and with a manipulation of information so vital for the citizen's
participation in a democratic system. The Summer School will firstly
identify the main point of views on the "media war" in former
Yugoslavia.
Further, it will deal with the consequences of war on face-to-face and
media
communication with the emphasis on children's communication. Last, it
will
focus on the role of the media in children's lives (violence,
stereotypes,
private/public spheres, pornography) and will try to answer the
question
What kind of knowledge and skills does the citizen need in a media
saturated
world?

To sufficiently cover the topics, international professors from
different
perspectives (sociology, media studies, psychology, history, political
science ) are invited to lecture. The official language is English.
The
schedule will be divided into lectures in the mornings, and seminars
(with
the use of new teaching methods) in the afternoon. The Summer School
will
cover the participants the expanses of accommodation, food,
school-material
and main travel costs.

WHO MAY APPLY: The participants must be from former Yugoslavia. Summer
school will host journalists and young academic stuff, preferably with
a
finished MA degree. The participants should send their CV's, and a
written
assignment (3 pages) with the title "Media education in my country",
where
three main questions have to be addressed: 1. The role of the media
(state-media-civil society; media propaganda, public opinion process);
2.
The position of Media education in your country (Media education as a
part
of educational curriculum in different levels of schools, where
individuals
are thought about the media); 3. The possible solutions to improve the
Communication act. On the basis of the above, send your applications
no
later than till the 30th of March on organisers' emails. The board
will
select 25 participants and will announce the results till the end of
April.
