audience research; diaspora, migration, and the media; identity and the media; media and the city; transnational communities and networks
Dr Myria Georgiou''s research focuses on transnational communication and cosmopolitan identities. Her current research has three distinct, though interconnected, strands. The first strand focuses on media consumption and its role in identity construction, especially among diasporic and migrant audiences. The second strand explores notions and experiences of citizenship as these relate to mediated communication in and across culturally diverse societies and their policy implications. The third strand focuses on the cosmopolitan city as a distinct cultural and political location of juxtapositions of difference that involve people, technologies and media cultures.
These strands are explored in a series of recent and current research project, that include a cross-European project on Arab audiences and citizenship (FP7); a study of the British press representation of minorities (EU Fundamental Rights Agency); and a study of transnational mediated gendered networks (WUN; University of Leeds). She is currently writing a book titled Media and the City (forthcoming, Polity Press).
