MEDLIT (Erasmus+ CBHE Project):- International Media Studies: Media Literacy as a Media Competence Program for Social Change

The MEDLIT-project has officially been established in October 2015 by a grant from the European Commission within the framework of the Erasmus Plus programme, specifically the call for Capacity-building in the Field of Higher-Education. The mission for the consortium is to expand academic structures of knowledge exchange and transnational knowledge development in the field of Media Literacy

It is meant to build capacities for a broad educational program of awareness and societal reasonability for the social and cultural usage of media in the interest of maintaining and developing individual motifs of meaningful and mindful participation in society-relevant discourses and social life. 

Speaking about the consortium, the project network consists of three European Universities from Austria, Germany, and the Netherlands and altogether six Universities from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The geographical focus on South-East-Asia is interesting because of many reasons: The phenomena of globalization are mirrored differently, in Asia more in terms of technology, as in Europe more in terms of culture. Both dimensions are important levels of development and in that meaning areas of social change to be societally understood, to be considered and reflected in the frame of social, cultural and media studies.

Furthermore, the South-East-Asia Region became a strong partner for academic cooperation for the Department of Communication, which we want to deepen, to widen and to strengthen with effects in a sustainable programme of diversification of teaching and research.
