Media Impact Fellowship Program

The Harmony Institute applies experimental, data-driven methods to investigate how entertainment media can bring about social change. A grant from the Rita Allen Foundation is supporting a new Media Impact Fellowship Program for leading researchers in the social sciences and data science. The Institute is collaborating with the Fellows in developing projects to analyze the social impact of films, television programs, games, news stories and other media, such as Story Pilot, a new web application exploring the impact of documentary film.
