Media studies

Section of Media Studies studies the role of media in culture, politics and society, including the social and cultural changes brought about by the commercialization, globalization and digitalization of media.

We are particularly interested in topics such as media and power, media and popular culture, news and journalism, social media, communication across platforms, visual communication, science communication, political communication, and media policy and regulation.

Section of Media Studies brings together scholars from the humanities and the social sciences who share an interest in theoretical approaches such as mediatization, datafication and individualization. Empirically we apply both quantitative and qualitative methods as well as current and historical perspectives. Section members especially teach at the BA-, MA- and elective programs in Film and Media Studies.

Is there a particular ”Nordicness”?
