Started in 2010, Media Meet is an initiative by the Department of Media Studies of CHRIST (Deemed to be University), Bangalore, India. Over the years, the event has brought together many pioneers of the media disciplines together with industry leaders, providing a space for networking. After a decade of growth and grandeur, Media Meet has grown potentially to adapt to the changes in the media industry and technological growth. In order to address all avenues of the media industry Media Meet set themes for every year since its inception. Starting with Moving Frames in 2010 that shone a light on Cinema, the consequent years focused on themes such as Advertising, New media, Broadcast and Print Media, Big Data, Media Ethics, and 2020’s theme- Media Literacy.
Engaging seminars, interactive workshops, and discussions are just a few of the events Media Meet has to offer. Apart from this, Media Meet also organises paper presentations that provide a platform for various research scholars to present their research papers to various guests and academicians.
A number of keynote speakers are invited to give their two cents on the topic at hand. We’ve had a myriad of guests in the past that have provided us with various insights, and also answered questions put up by the audience. The roster of keynote speakers includes Mr Harish Bijoor, Mr Sunil Gopinath , Mr Arnab Goswami, Justice Markandey Katju, Ms Shovana Narayanan, Mr A.S. Panneerselvan, Mr SS Rajamouli, Mr Gautam Menon, Mr Rajdeep Sardesai, Ms Dhanya Rajendran, and many more notable industry professionals.
Department of Media Studies
After the entrance of the Department of Media Studies in 1991, nothing was the same at CHRIST. Since then, the department has been the torchbearer of imparting distinguished media education to the students. The Department of Media Studies is where the pen is mightier than the sword, where the camera is more than just an acquaintance, where vision becomes reality and where teachers become family. Whether it’s creating a conducive learning environment or conducting the most happening events on campus, the department has always been at the top of its game, creating the leaders of tomorrow.
