The Media and Area Studies (MARS) programme at Charles University provides in-depth and critical knowledge about processes of mediation and signification, and how space and geography, the political and social specificities of an area, intersect with them. Thus, the programme enables a thorough understanding of the role of context.
Regions are not internally homogeneous, and they cannot be studied in isolation. Regions should be considered as particular socio-political and cultural entities with characterizing but complex, and sometimes contradictory, particularities. These particularities are extremely significant for the study of media spheres embedded in these regions. The theoretical-methodological background of the programme consists of a combination of post-colonial theory, media sociology, memory studies and political geography.
