The Use of Media

While media is an increasingly vital tool for communicating ideas, its use in academia remains extremely limited. Our lab’s interest is to develop media-based projects as forms of scholarship, public engagement, and social action.  We believe the intersection of these activities not only provides a rich palate from which we engage our academic work but also provides a flexible tool for engaging the world around us.  In addition to the desire to use media in the multiplicity of ways described above, we are also interested in reflection on how media works, including the relationship between media and audience.
