BE A VISITING SCHOLAR
We are lucky to have had a variety of talented researchers spend time with us at the Media Education Lab. Visiting Scholars have time to work on their own research projects and may also contribute to collaborative research that leads to publication. Many Visiting Scholars participate in some of our many education and community outreach activities. Contact Yonty Friesem to learn more about how you can join the Media Education Lab as a Visiting Scholar.
