The Media School Graduate Student Conference
Feb. 23, 2018 | Indiana University-Bloomington
At The Media School, “media” is our common ground, the one thing that links us all together. We come from a variety of academic backgrounds, disciplines and departments; we draw on a range of perspectives, methods and theories. But we all share a common object of study: media.
With media as our common frame of reference, this conference is dedicated to showcasing the variety of interdisciplinary, media-related graduate student research at IU. The conference aims to bring graduate students from across campus together in constructive dialogue, to forge new relationships, cross-pollinate ideas, inspire, learn and educate each other. All events and workshops will be at Franklin Hall.
This conference will include both traditional 50-minute panels devoted to the formal presentation of research and more conversational workshops devoted to working through disciplinary, methodological or political/cultural questions. Additionally, we will feature media objects such as short films, images, photographs and other types of media objects.
If you produce, study, criticize or celebrate media, if your research touches on one of the many things that “media” signifies, and if you are a grad student at IU, we call on you to join us in a campus-wide conference on media.
