About the Journal
Media Peripheries is a new journal of media and communication studies based in Aotearoa New Zealand. Established in 2022, Media Peripheries continues the legacy of MEDIANZ (which in turn was formerly known as The New Zealand Journal of Media Studies). Media Peripheries aims to be a forum of academic debates that are regional in focus and global in scope and is particularly interested in research that focuses on the peripheries of the global media system both in geographical and cultural terms. The journal conceives the broad notion of periphery as referring to both the specific location of Aotearoa as situated at the margins of the Global North, as well as topics and voices that are under-researched within media and communication studies.
MEDIANZ:Media Studies Journal of Aotearoa New Zealand is the new name for the New Zealand Journal of Media Studies, the back issues of which are archived on this site.
The Journal is also affiliated with the MEDIANZ list. For information about media studies events and opportunities within Aotearoa New Zealand and beyond, please subscribe via the Web at
