Cinema Studies

Cinema Studies designates the study of moving images and image cultures harking back to periods prior to the breakthrough of film, up until the diverse platforms of the current mediascape. The focus of our teaching and research primarily concerns key medial moments of transformation; in our field both research objects and the methods with which they are studied constantly undergo change.

Global Media Studies and the Politics of Mediated Communication

Research at JMK is marked by outstanding international publications, external research financing and participation in established research networks. Our output is at the forefront of scholarly dialogues on the role of mediated communication in society, drawing upon research questions and methods emanating from both the humanities and social sciences. Comparative studies – over time, between media genres and across cultures – constitute a particular strong suit. A central concern of research conducted under the rubrics of Global Media and Politics of Communication is to produce innovative and meaningful research that aims to contribute to the field by way of promoting a social perspective.
