The Centre for Transnational Media Research

The Centre for Transnational Media Research is dedicated to the study and understanding of transnational media flows. It provides a unique interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary space, where researchers (academics, graduate students, practitioners) can gather and participate in sustained conversation to help better understand transnational flows of media products, recognizing multiple levels of circulation and distribution, reception platforms and audiences, and content and production practices, as well as geopolitical specificities, geo-linguistic clusters and socio-cultural marked-ness.
