The summer school brings together members of the European research community to debate contemporary issues in media, communication and cultural studies. The programme combines contributions from international experts and junior scholars, and takes the form of lectures, seminars, presentations, and workshops.

The summer school aims to provide a supportive international setting where doctoral students can present their ongoing work and get feedback from peers and senior scholars. During the summer school PhD students can meet other students and academics from different countries, establishing valuable contacts for the future. It also presents the international landscape of communication and media research, helping the students situate themselves within that.

There are three options for attending the summer school:

1. For students whose university is a member of the organising consortium (1) the fee will be 370 euros. This fee will also cover the (cheapest possible) travel costs to the summer school location (Tartu).

2. For individual or institutional ECREA members, the fee will also be 370 euros. This fee will not cover the travel costs.

3. Non-consortium and non-ECREA members can become an ECREA member at a reduced fee. The ECREA membership application can be submitted simultaneously with the summer school application. The summer school fee will be 370 euros. This fee will not cover the travel costs.
