RESEARCH

The Global Media Studies Initiative supports four main research themes, each led by a member of the faculty group. In addition to research conducted by GMSI faculty and students, we work with allied departments and area studies centers at the University of Michigan to sponsor speakers, conferences, and research projects on campus and around the world.
