Media, Information and Culture

As the media move rapidly to expand their place in everyday life, the Centre’s faculty members have examined the sites of cinema, new media, and information cultures. The Centre’s Sarai programme, established in 2000, has initiated research on media and urban life, cinema, memory and contemporary culture, intellectual property law and the public domain, as well as art practice. Through its fellowship programme, Sarai has facilitated research, online discussions and the public domain publication of work on urban cultures, media forms, languages, art and software practices. A Centre project tracked the coverage of rural issues by the media industry, while another analysed the phenomenon of paid news. The international peer-reviewed media journal, Bioscope, is partially the outcome of a CSDS faculty initiative.
