Led by Prof. Paolo Granata, the Media Ethics Lab aims to foster the making of an intellectual community that serves as a source of knowledgeable energy and encouragement for future research connections in the field of Media Ethics. It also aims to sustain a scholarly network, providing both an intellectual and social space in which to engage with issues of media and communication studies relevant to contemporary social realities and digital culture. By reaching out to theorists, experimentalists, technologists, students, and the broader public, the Media Ethics Lab actively explores and stimulates the value of ethical thinking for research, learning, and civic engagement.
Professor Granata joined the University of Toronto after spending 15 years at the University of Bologna, Italy, where he almost entirely established his own academic career in research, teaching, and public engagement.
Since October 2018, he is a member of the Executive Committee of the Canadian Commission for UNESCO as Chair of the Culture, Communication and Information Sectoral commission.
