Description

The module traces the emergence of the modern media landscape, from mid-19th century until the 1940s. The thematic focus is the entangled development of national and transnational media such as telegraphic communication systems. For instance, we take a closer look at the changes of the late 19th century press industry, the transformation of the contributors to the press from literary men to journalists, the role of advertising and consumption in mass society, the development of audio media (radio, telephone and phonograph) between private and public listening, early film, and media and propaganda in the World War era.

Teaching consists of lectures, seminars and exercises, based in both the classroom and our digital platform Canvas. You will practise your skills in writing and analysing in your own blog, in papers and in digital forums. Together with your fellow students you will explore historical source material and secondary literature and improve your ability to make oral presentations.

The course can be taken as a stand alone course, or as part of the First Level course in Media History.

How to apply

Lund University uses a national application system run by University Admissions in Sweden. It is only possible to apply during the application periods: October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

Extended application deadline

Sometimes the application deadline is extended for a specific programme or course. In these cases you will find the message "open for late application" by the programme/course information on universityadmissions.se. You apply with the usual application steps. As long as this message is showing, it is possible to apply, but late applications are processed in order of date, so it is still important to apply as soon as possible. Please note that if the programme/course does not have an extended deadline, it is not possible to apply late.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
