ST. BONAVENTURE, NY — The Jandoli Institute will launch "Media Studies Across Disciplines," a collection of research essays by St. Bonaventure University faculty members, this week.

“The essays connect different academic disciplines with the field of communication,” Richard Lee, executive director of the institute and an associate professor in the Jandoli School of Communication, said. “Faculty members used their knowledge and expertise to provide insight and analysis from their own individual perspectives.”

The institute will post a new essay on its website every Tuesday, starting June 23 and continuing through Aug. 11. Several of the authors also have chosen to present their papers on Zoom on Thursdays in an academic conference format.

 “Authors will have 15 minutes to present their papers and will then engage in Q&A panel discussions,” Lee explained.

Faculty from biology, history, nursing, philosophy and sociology contributed to the project, which was funded by the Leo E. Keenan Jr. Faculty Development Endowment and the Jandoli School of Communication.

The Jandoli Institute serves as a forum for academic research, creative ideas and discussion on the intersection between media and democracy. The institute, accessible at, is part of the Jandoli School of Communication at St. Bonaventure University
