Interdisciplinary research on deep mediatization of culture and society

The research activities at the ZeMKI are organized under the direction of a professor in the form of working groups: the ZeMKI Labs. The task of the labs is the realization of basic and applied research in the overall research field  of the ZeMKI.

At the moment, the ZeMKI maintains eight labs:

The research profile of the ZeMKI fits clearly into the mission statement of the University of Bremen: It is internationally oriented in its object of research and its positioning, as well as in questions of cultural diversity.  Reseach at the ZeMKI is interdisciplinary: In addition to communication and media studies, history, film studies, religious studies, sociology, political science, pedagogy, and computer science are also involved as disciplines. ZeMKI carries out joint research projects in the fields of media, cultural and social change, information management, educational change and digital media as well as critical media and communication theory development. These research projects are funded by the German Research Foundation, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the European Union and various foundations, both individually and collectively.

The annual ZeMKI Research Report presents the research activities at the ZeMKI in German and English. In addition, the members of the ZeMKI regularly publish research publications in their own and third-party journals, in the form of monographs and edited volumes as well as special issues of renowned specialist periodicals. ZeMKI itself publishes various book series and scientific journals as well as a working paper series on the transformation of social communication ("Communicative Figurations").

During the lecture period, guest lectures by (international) guest scientists are held regularly at the ZeMKI as part of the research seminar started in 2005. Once a year, the ZeMKI invites to an international conference on changing topics of the interrelated change of media, culture and society. In addition, ZeMKI members are regularly involved in the organization of national and international scientific conferences. In addition, the transfer of knowledge also includes various other event formats, in particular the ZeMKI Media Talks in cooperation with Radio Bremen (Bremen Zwei) and the annual International Bremen Film Conference in cooperation with CITY46/Kommunalkino Bremen. With the participation of all ZeMKI-Labs, these events are aimed at Bremen's citizens and make research activities accessible to a broad public. The regular participation in the Open Campus of the University of Bremen also serves this purpose.
