The English trajectory Comparative Media Studies is meant for students who have a broad interest in historical and theoretical topics with regard to media and performance within the broader context of our mediatised culture and society in which theatre and dance, film, television and digital media are increasingly interrelated in many ways and respects. Students following this advanced trajectory are more specifically interested in subjects like spectatorship, playful media and performance cultures, media and performance in transition, and the performativity and mobility of screen media. This trajectory is in particular recommended to students who prefer to study several objects – theatre and dance, film and television, and digital media – instead of mainly one of these and who want to prepare themselves for the Research Master Media and Performance.
This booklet describes what is on offer in this trajectory, how the programme is composed, and what knowledge and skills you develop. Moreover you will find a detailed list with relevant literature and short descriptions. This booklet is designed for first year students who still have to choose their advanced trajectory, and for students who are already participating in a trajectory.
