“LMC plays a vital role at Georgia Tech, both in educating majors in six threads of enormous contemporary significance (Literature; Media; Communication; Social Justice; Design; and Science, Technology, and Culture), as well as in enriching the worldview of students in other disciplines. ”

Ángel Cabrera, President

Our Approach

Literature, Media, and Communication (LMC) defines new models of intellectual inquiry and practice that bring diverse humanistic perspectives to bear on technological invention and innovation. LMC researches and teaches how humanities shape and are shaped by science and technology. Faculty and students assess and inform technological and scientific change by creating, analyzing, and critiquing a broad range of media forms and cultural practices.
