Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schulz is the chairholder of the UNESCO Chair on Freedom of Communication and Information at the University of Hamburg and The Hans Bredow Institute for Media Research, Hamburg, Germany.
The Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut (HBI) examines media change and the related structural shifts in public communication. It combines basic research and research on knowledge transfer from cross-media, interdisciplinary and independent scholarly perspectives. Thus, the institute is a valued provider of problem-specific knowledge for politics, commerce and civil society.
The research perspective of the Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut (HBI) focuses on media-based public communication, regardless of the individual technical platforms involved. The institute’s research focuses on how certain forms of media-based communication influence different aspects of our lives, such as politics, economy, culture, education, law, religion and family, and how they contribute to structural transformations. The fact that the research activities are problem-oriented also leads to a distinct interest in the “new” media – and it is the Institute’s aim to contribute to their understanding as well as to their future shape.
