Theories of Media and Communication — Histories and Relevance

Project: Research

See relations at Aarhus University


I took the initiative to and was the manager of the research project entitled "Theories of Media and Communication: Histories and Relevance."

The two main and related objectives of the project were as follows:

1) Prioritise the field of media and communication theory, its histories and relevance, as an independent field of research within media and communication studies

2) Contribute to the development of media and communication theories with particular emphasis on the newest media (Internet, digital newspaper/radio/TV, cell phoning, etc.) and the interaction of these with existing media, which will largely occur in light of and through systematic and critical readings of existing theories

From 2003 through 2006 the project was funded by the Danish Research Council for the Humanities.
