Culture, Media & Creative Industries Research


MPhil/PhD (option of joint PhD with Humboldt University, Berlin)


Full Time

CMCI carries out world-leading research across the field of culture, media and the analysis of particular creative industries. Specialisms include cultural work, creative cities, visual cultures, popular culture, cultural and creative industries policy, cultural management, entrepreneurship and cultural production, cultural regeneration, cultural history, culture and identity, and inter-sectionally and culture. Our approach is international in perspective and is characterised by a productive engagement of the theoretical and empirical.

CMCI is also developing, in concert with Digital Humanities, research into digital cultures, particularly into social networks, digital identities and digital activism.

We work in an inter-disciplinary mode: although we are based in the School of Arts & Humanities, much of our research has roots in the social sciences.
