Each year, the Common Ground conference gives graduate students the opportunity to showcase their completed and ongoing research. It also affords them opportunity to network socially with other graduate students and academics from inside and outside The Media School.
We named this conference Common Ground because it emphasizes the rich benefits derived from studying media from varied disciplines. Although we are from a plurality of approaches, we occupy a “common ground,” that is, the study of media in all its forms and contexts. Annually, we bring together graduate students from different fields to present research on media.
