School of Literature, Media, and Communication
The School of Literature, Media, and Communication at Georgia Tech defines new models of intellectual inquiry and practice that bring diverse humanistic perspectives to bear on technological invention and innovation. Our mission is to research and teach how the humanities shape and are shaped by science and technology. We believe that understanding technologies in their cultural contexts is fundamental to invention and innovation, and our faculty and students assess and inform technological and scientific change by creating, analyzing, and critiquing a broad range of media forms and cultural practices. Our School’s strategic objective is to create Humanistic Perspectives in a Technological World.
