    Call for participation: Mobile Studies Summer School 2022 (MSSS2022)


From 6 June to 8 August, every Monday from 4-5pm, free and online

The rise of mobile has led to a world where almost everyone is able to go mobile. Many of our activities as humans have been optimised to be mobile, anytime and anywhere. Our mobile lifestyle is dominated by mobile media, mobile communications, mobile content, and mobile experiences. Furthermore, it has led to a mobile working environment, where almost all work activities can be done in a mobile way, including mobile governance, mobile storytelling, mobile health, mobile learning, mobile commerce, and mobile propaganda, to name a few.

But how to thrive in a mobile world? How to benefit from a mobile lifestyle? How to stay productive in a mobile working environment? From 6 June to 8 August, every Monday for one hour (4-5pm), you are invited to participate in our Mobile Studies Summer School (online) to work together to find all these answers.

The third Mobile Studies Summer School (MSSS2022) is an annual event hosted by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China. It provides participants with the latest knowledge and skills related to mobile media and communication. The summer school lasts ten weeks and has ten weekly topics.
