Academy programme Media and Society (MEDIASOC)

Society has become thoroughly mediatised. Every aspect and area from the economy and politics to civil society and everyday social relations is increasingly saturated, in ever new ways, by media. The media have become an increasingly important, but at the same time an increasingly complex and unpredictable part of every facet of society and culture.

The Academy Programme Media and Society (MediaSoc) will provide new impetus and direction for Finnish research into society by bringing together different fields of study and different approaches and by linking them with a current research theme of great social importance. The programme’s multidisciplinary approach will aim to identify, analyse and explain relevant social concepts, phenomena and trends, and to open up horizons for new solutions and choices in present-day society.

Media and Society is an Academy Programme that has two interconnected and intersecting research themes:

THEME 1: The relationship between media and society

THEME 2: Technology in media transition

Projects may be related to one theme only, but applications are encouraged that combine elements from both themes.
