Doctoral Summer School “The values of the commons in the digital society”

The International Doctoral Summer School “The values of the commons in the digital society” is an open space for international PhD students to get together and discuss, reflect on and learn about the relevance of the commons and the public realm in our current societies.

The main theme of this course will be the public value of public service media within the European framework, considering the impact of digital platforms (research, reach and crisis). However, we aspire to create an open space to debate, reflect on and exchange ideas that will broaden the focus from Communication Studies to other Social Sciences, such as Political Science, Psychology, Pedagogy, Economics and Business, Computer Sciences, Philosophy, Languages and Literature and even Artificial Intelligence and Engineering.

The main purpose of this Summer School is to gather a broadinternational, and diverse group of Social Sciences PhD students to discuss the relevance of the public realm and public services in our current societies.
