Movable Type was initiated by a group of media studies students at the University of Virginia with the support of the department. The mission of the journal was and is to highlight outstanding work and research completed by undergraduate students at UVA.
The journal was dormant for several years after the team working to put the journal together graduated. In the spring of 2014, Movable Type was brought to life once again by a handful of enterprising media studies students. The first edition of the newly re-established journal was published with great success that Spring.
Movable Type continues to bring together students and faculty together to acknowledge and celebrate the research interests and work of undergraduate students at UVA.
