Media Studies Across Disciplines

The Jandoli Institute Media Studies Across Disciplines project is a collection of research essays by St. Bonaventure University faculty members. The essays connect different academic disciplines with the field of communication. 

During the summer of 2020, we will post a new essay every Tuesday from June 23 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. 

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.
