As a Central Research Unit (ZWE) of the University of Bremen, the Centre for Media, Communication and Information Research (ZeMKI) deals with questions of media and communication change at the interface of cultural and social sciences on the one hand and technical sciences on the other. The special aspect here is the interdisciplinary orientation of the research institute: it brings together researchers from the fields of communication and media studies, religious studies, information management, media education, and history. In addition to their research activities, the members of ZeMKI teach on the various media degree programs at the University of Bremen and are publicly involved in issues related to media and communication change.
