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 conducted at the Journalism and Media-Communication Studies (JMK) Division of the Department of Media Studies (IMS) revolves around questions related with global media forms and cultures, and political aspects of mediated communication from critical and societal perspectives. In addition, our research on globalization and media is interdisciplinary and critical, aspiring to combine theoretical finesse with innovative scholarship. Global Media Studies, which constitutes the first thematic area of the LRE is an area in which JMK excels nationally-internationally.
