The ALiGN (ALternative Global Network) Media Lab is a research and public engagement lab hosted by the School of Journalism and Communication at Carleton University.

It was founded by Merlyna Lim, Canada Research Chair in Digital Media and Global Network Society and a professor at Communication and Media Studies program and officially launched to public in September 2017 (check this link to see the launch videos, including the “Tour de ALiGN” with the director, where you will learn more about the Lab).

ALiGN Media Lab was established with the support from the Canada for Innovation Foundation (John R. Evans Leaders Fund) and the Ontario Research Fund.
