A leading research environment at Stockholm University

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.
