Máire Messenger Davies, Professor of Media Studies at the University of Ulster, will be speaking at seminar organised by the Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI) at the  of University of Westminster

In this seminar, Máire Messenger Davies, will touch on issues raised in her book, Children, Media and Culture, including the role of children’s media in current adult debates around media policy, and the value of children’s broadcast media both for children themselves, and for society more widely. She will touch on particular examples, and encourage the audience to reflect on their own experiences of children’s media.

Máire Messenger Davies is part-time Professor of Media Studies at the University of Ulster in Coleraine, Northern Ireland, where she ran the Centre for Media Research between 2004 and 2010, and a Visiting Professor at the University of Glamorgan. A former journalist, with a degree in English Literature from Trinity College Dublin, and a PhD in Psychology from the University of East London, she has taught and conducted research in universities on both sides of the Atlantic. She still believes, as the title of her first book about children’s television asserts, that ‘Television is Good for Your Kids.’
