The research network for media historians in Switzerland brings together scholars from different fields with research interests in media history, archivists, and curators from museums to advance the study of media history in Switzerland. Media History | CH facilitates exchange between scholars in Switzerland who work on topics related to media history as well as for researchers working outside of Switzerland but with a focus on Swiss media history.
The network aims to establish collaborations across disciplines, drawing connections between scholarly fields, Swiss universities, and public institutions. It will provide mentoring and support for PhD students in the field of media history.
Previous exploratory events have led to the realisation of this network. We have met in February 2019 at the Museum of Communication in Bern to kick-start exchange. Our next meeting will be held in June 2020 in Lausanne.
