Welcome!

The Center for Media Studies serves as a locus for research in the study and application of media in the broadest sense-present, past, and future.

Some of our current projects:

Object Lessons

Object Lessons is an essay and book series published by The Atlantic and Bloomsbury about the hidden lives of ordinary things, from sardines to silence, juniper berries to jumper cables.

Platform Studies investigates the relationships between the hardware and software design of computing systems and the creative works produced on those systems.
