How do media texts from the past shape our understanding of the present? How do media technologies and formats interact with each other and with historical events and contexts? How do concepts such as intermediality, remediation, cultural memory, affect and authenticity help us analyse and evaluate these processes?

This course on “Intermediality and Remediation as Cultural Memory” will explore these questions through a combination of theoretical readings, lectures, workshops, and case studies. You will learn how to apply key concepts and methods to analyse the use of remediation in different media texts, in relation to national history and cultural memory. You will also design and execute your own independent project on a topic of your choice, using audio-visual, written, and oral forms of presentation. This course will equip you with skills and knowledge that are valuable for further studies and research in film studies, historiography, comparative literature, visual studies, and related disciplines. It will be relevant for work within media production, journalism, education, cultural heritage, and other fields where an understanding of audiovisual media history and culture is essential.


This course is not open as a freestanding course next semester. It can be open for application within a programme or for students in an exchange programme. Please ask your academic advisor for information.

How to apply

Lund University uses a national application system run by University Admissions in Sweden. It is only possible to apply during the application periods: October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

Extended application deadline

Sometimes the application deadline is extended for a specific programme or course. In these cases you will find the message "open for late application" by the programme/course information on You apply with the usual application steps. As long as this message is showing, it is possible to apply, but late applications are processed in order of date, so it is still important to apply as soon as possible. Please note that if the programme/course does not have an extended deadline, it is not possible to apply late.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
