The European Media and Communication Doctoral Summer School brings together members of the European research community to this summer school in order to debate contemporary issues in media, communication and cultural studies. The summer school aims to provide a supportive international setting where doctoral students can present their ongoing work, receive feedback on their PhD-projects from international experts and meet students and academics from other countries, establishing valuable contacts for the future.

From 2016 to 2018 the Summer School will be hosted by the Department of Communication Studies and Performing Arts at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milan, Italy. The 2018 edition will take place July 19 to July 27, 2018.
