Culture, Media and Creative Industries is a vibrant, research-led department that approaches a new subject area with traditional academic rigour.
We specialise in the relationship between all three of culture, media and the creative industries -from the origins of the first through the development of the second and the energy of the third.
We approach all these from a variety of different perspectives achieving both breadth in scope and depth in specialisation. Our academic staff are drawn from a variety of disciplines across the arts, humanities and social sciences, focusing our collective expertise together from a range of complementary and converging viewpoints. We are unafraid to take risks.
Our research placed us at number one in the UK for “power” in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, with 80% of our research recognised as world-leading and internationally excellent. Together, our current staff account for over 50 books, edited volumes and edited journals as shown on our departmental publications wall. We have over 20 active researchers, including five “full” professors, together with 40 postgraduate research students.
