Center for Media, Culture & Social Good
The Center for Media, Culture & Social Good (CMCSG) hosts panel discussions and film screenings and conducts research to promote deeper levels of engagement to help us, as a community, better understand not merely how we are affected by popular media, but, more significantly, how we can influence that media through our informed reception of it.
Georgetown University was founded on the principle “that serious and sustained discourse among people of different faiths, cultures, and beliefs promotes intellectual, ethical and spiritual understanding.” CMCSG builds upon this ideal, situating itself at the distinct intersection of popular media and social good. We encourage open, respectful discussion of topics related to core human values through the critical reception of film, television, music, sports and other forms of entertainment media and technology.
