Hi all,
there are currently a few opportunities at Cardiff University for  
people who wish to do an MA or Postdoc in topics that relate to  
community, alternative, citizen, activist etc. media. The Cardiff  
School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies (JOMEC) has a strong  
interest in these areas. Students can get involved with, for example,  
the JOMEC Research Group Digital Media and Society and the Centre for  
Community Journalism. I copy below a couple of links and  
announcements, in case anyone is interested.


MA Digital Media and Society

The MA Digital Media and Society addresses current challenges of  
online communication and internet studies, with a focus on citizen  
journalism, big data and digital rights. Grants are currently  
available to cover part of the tuition fees.


Marie Skłodowska Curie - Postdoctoral fellowships (IF) programme

The Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies (JOMEC)  
invites expressions of interest from experienced postdoctoral  
researchers as part of the Marie Skłodowska Curie - Individual  
fellowships (IF) programme.

The School has 24 research active staff clustered across seven  
research centres/groups: Digital Media and Society; Journalism and  
Democracy; Media, Culture and Creativity; Communication and Human  
Security; Science, Health and the Media; as well as the Tom Hopkinson  
Centre for Media History and the Coma and Disorders of Consciousness  
Research Centre.

Individual researchers submit proposals for funding in liaison with  
their proposed JOMEC Supervisor. Proposals are judged on their  
research quality, the researcher's future career prospects, and the  
support offered by the host organisation.

Brief expressions of interest (including (1) 250 words on your  
proposed research project and (2) your CV) must be sent by email to  
Julie Jewell ([log in to unmask]). The subject line should be
