WP 5 – Civil Society and the Public Sphere  

WP 5 events

Bremen, 22 July-17 August 2007

Organised by the Jean Monnet Centre for European Studies (CEuS), Bremen.

Venue: University of Bremen


Media analysis has become an integral part of various disciplines studying public debates and political discourses, from political science and sociology to communications sciences. The methods of how to produce and analyse such data thus have become highly important in recent years and are expected to become even more so in the future. The University of Bremen organises and hosts the Summer School ‘Advanced Methods and Techniques in Media Analysis’. The summer school focuses on media discourse analysis using the software Atlas.ti, and is part of RECON’s subproject on Civil Society and the Public Sphere (WP 5).
