The SSRC's Media & Democracy program seeks to understand the evolving relationship between media, technology, and democratic life. Within this interdisciplinary and cross-sector scholarly community, the program incubates reflection and catalyzes research about a fast-moving subject, situating the present moment of technological and political change in broader historical and cultural contexts. By building bridges across disciplines and industries, the program works to consolidate an otherwise variegated field of scholars and practitioners.

In pursuit of these goals, SSRC's Media & Democracy program convenes workshops, public events, open forums, and web platforms that generate and publicize research and analysis at the intersection of media, technology, and democracy
