Global Emergent Media Lab
The GLOBAL EMERGENT MEDIA (GEM) Lab is a unique research platform centered on the critical study of global new media. GEM projects examine emergent media forms and practices in a global context, and address the pressing need to broaden our understandings of media and globalization beyond dominant Western contexts and epistemologies. Key areas of focus include: Asian Media and Modernities; Video Cultures; Media and Migration; Global Smart Technologies; Internet Television and Videographic Research Methods, among many other collaborative projects.
The GEM LAB offers crucial support for the larger CRC Research Program by providing a cutting edge Lab space for day-to-day research activities and special events; digital ethnography projects (including production and postproduction tools), access to a UHD/HD motion picture film scanner for digitization and archiving; monitoring stations for the capture and analysis of internet video (e.g. “streaming”) and other online platforms, as well as seminars, workshops, master classes, and conferences.
