Understanding the changing media environment and its impact on our society and political climate is complex, requiring analysis from multiple viewpoints. This conference brought together scholars across fields to examine critical questions of how the media shapes our lives today.
This conference was made possible with generous support from the Andrew and Betsy Rosenfield Program in Economics, Public Policy, and Law.
In a new video spotlight, conference presenters Ruben Durante, Eleonora Freddi, and Donghee Jo discuss their research.
