Research Seminar: Corinne Schweizer Public Service Media as a Commons? Theoretical considerations and a comparative empirical outlook

26th November 2014, 4.15pm5.30pm

Public service broadcasters in many European countries have successfully established online platforms (see e.g. Brevini 2013) and therefore became public service media (PSM). Legal frameworks approve the new channel and determine its funding. Some countries also invented public value tests to ex ante assess new services (Donders & Moe 2011). But the debate on PSM’s purpose and legitimacy is far from completed. PSM are especially challenged to achieve greater openness and opportunities for public participation.

Research Seminar: Marwan M Kraidy Digital Activism of Another Kind

10th December 2014, 4.15pm5.30pm

Why is political humor central to revolutionary activism? The Syrian uprising that started in March 2010 gave rise to a rich cornucopia of parody and satire. Through an in-depth analysis of one instance of revolutionary humor, the video web series Top Goon—Diaries of a Little Dictator, I explore how the symbolism of the human body, coupled with a peculiar aesthetic of miniaturization, anchor humor to revolutionary struggle.
