Martin Chautari’s work on media encompasses all five aspects of the institution’s work domains. These include research on media in Nepal, mentoring of young researchers, and publication of books on various aspects of the Nepali media and an annual journal Media Adhyayan. MC’s media related work also includes the development of a special collection of books on media in Nepal and abroad. This special collection of about 4,000 books, theses, reports and other reference items is the largest of its kind in any reference library in Nepal. Online search of that collection is available via the MC Online Library Catalog.  MC has also organized many media-related seminars. It has also organized an annual Media research conference  since 2010. Since 2012, this conference has been held in collaboration with Department of Languages and Mass Communication of Kathmandu University.

MC’s media research work is done by a group of full-time researchers based at the institution. As part of MC’s broader effort to promote media research in Nepal, it offered research fellowships to MA thesis writers and independent researchers from 2006 to 2012. A list of the fellowships awarded and an internal evaluation of how this program was executed can be found by clicking the links below.
