The Winter School is organized around a series of lectures on ‘The Challenges of Global Communications’ in the mornings and workshops in the afternoons. Participants are invited to choose one of two thematic workshops to follow for the 5 days:

Global communications and governance

This workshop will address global policies which guide the development of technologies and comunicative processes. By participating in mapping activities and analysis of actors, interventions and controversial themes (with the support of innovative digital tools) the students will be invited to understand the complexity of the panorama of world media policies and, more generally, communication in order to reach an understanding of problematic issues and interactions with other sectors, and acquire tools for analysis.

Intercultural communication and globality

The aim of this workshop is to explore some of the issues underlying intercultural communication and dialogue between people from diverse cultures and geopolitical contexts. Technological advances and increased migration flows offer increased opportunities for intercultural contact and exchange, yet intercultural communication is often characterized by misunderstandings and tension. Through participation in intercultural activities and analysis of intercultural communication and conflict in a diversity of contexts students will be invited to understand the complexity of communication and the multiplicity of factors which come into play and acquire some of the competences required to engage in constructive dialogue and engage constructively with alternative perspectives.
