The Jandoli Institute will launch Media Studies Across Disciplines, a collection of research essays by St. Bonaventure University faculty members, this week.
The essays connect different academic disciplines with the field of communication. Faculty members used their knowledge and expertise to provide insight and analysis from their own individual perspectives.
The institute will post a new essay on its website at jandoli.net every Tuesday, starting next week and continuing through Aug. 11. Several of the authors also will present their papers on Zoom in an academic conference format.
The Zoom sessions will take place on Thursdays. Authors will have 15 minutes to present their papers and will then engage in Q&A panel discussions.
Faculty from biology, history, nursing, philosophy and sociology contributed to the project, which was funded by the Leo E. Keenan Jr. Faculty Development Endowment and the Jandoli School of Communication.
