Intervjui

U ovom se prostoru povremeno obavljuju intervjui sa stručnjacima u području istraživanja medija. Osobito smo zainteresirani za njihovo viđenje polja medijskih studija, interdisciplinarnosti, suvremene znanosti, primjenjivosti istraživanja i uloge sociologije u tom kontekstu. Cilj je stvaranje baze intervjua koji bi bilježili stajališta vodećih stručnjaka i približavali ih široj sociološkoj i općoj javnosti.
