Media Studies refers to the broad range of interdisciplinary subjects focusing on media culture and production. This may include media theory; game studies & design; communication & culture; telecommunications & communication science; media production, design, & aesthetics; mass media & popular culture; film & cinema studies; journalism and the news, among many others. Students within the IU Media School, as well as those engaging with media, generally, in their research, are especially encouraged to utilize this service.
Gender studies is a transdisciplinary field that bridges and embraces a variety of modes of inquiry relevant to gender and the ways in which this discourse intersects with other domains, particularly sexuality and the body; (dis)ability and neurodiversity; race, ethnicity, and nationality; lgbt/queer culture & history; feminism; & popular culture and representation, among many others.
