Media Governance and Industries Research Lab


The Media Governance and Industries Research Team, established by Professor Sarikakis in 2011, brings together international scholars from different cognate disciplines, whose intellectual and sociocultural interests gravitate to the systematic study of the policies and politics of media, culture and communication. Our teaching is research-informed and our paedagogical philosophy is based on active, student-centred and student-led learning. We are welcoming new PhD students and scholars interested in working on the topics of the research described on this website. Please get in touch with Professor Sarikakis if you are interested in engaging in complementary research areas, as a PhD student or if you are planning to pursue funded research at a postdoctorate level.

We are situated in Währinger Straße 29, in the heart of the 9th Viennese district, after moving to the Department's new building at the start of September 2012.
