Description

På kursen studerar vi den grafiska kommunikationens villkor, medier och dokument i ett historiskt och kulturvetenskapligt perspektiv. Samspelet mellan texter, mediers materiella uttryck och samhällets förändring behandlas. Tyngdpunkten ligger på de tre kommunikationsrevolutionerna: framväxten av en skriftlig kultur, tryckkonstens genomslag och den digitala revolutionen. 

Du får lära dig om grafiska dokument och deras framställning, teknik, ekonomi och estetik. Vi studerar handskrifter, tryckta böcker, tidningar, bildtryck, digitala texter och mycket mer. Formen på en text har betydelse för vem som läser den och hur den blir läst. Dokumentens utformning, distribution och kulturella betydelse studeras i ljuset av bokmarknadens, bibliotekens och läsningens utveckling och förändring.

Bokhistoria kan läsas som fristående kurser från grundkurs till kandidatkurs (1‒90 hp) och kan utgöra huvudområde i examen på grundnivå (t.ex. filosofie kandidatexamen 180 hp). Kursen ges på halvfart och distans via internet.

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 universityadmissions.se. 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.
