|Visual Culture and Media Studies Network|
The Visual Culture and Media Studies Network is a virtual platform intended to create closer ties and connections among scholars from different disciplines working on visual and media studies with a special emphasis on North American topics. It places the study of visual culture and media in a comparatist, dialogical, and transcultural framework that supports the aim of studying U.S.-American culture in relationship with other nations and cultures as a productive and necessary way of recognizing the complexity of cultural exchange and interaction.
The network fosters scholarly exchange on research related to film, television, photography, painting, design, graphic arts, and new digital media. Please follow the Visual Culture and Media Studies Network's activities by checking this website: [http://www.en.amerikanistik.uni-muenchen.de/research/vcmsn/index.html].The Visual Culture and Media Studies Network is endorsed as an official research network by the European Association of American Studies. It is organized by Astrid Böger (University of Hamburg) and Christof Decker (University of Munich).
