Media Studies

The Media Studies Interest Group (MSIG) is united by a common interest in all aspects of media studies including mass communication, media education, media literacy, media production, telecommunications policy, media technology, media criticism, media and culture, media convergence, or other related areas. We are also committed to research and teaching on such topics as the functions of mass communication, audiences and their uses of media, and mass media impacts on both societies and institutions. MSIG also has a particular interest in studying the development of media technology forms, such as computer-mediated-communication, that alter traditional notions of mass communication.
