Research expertise in the Department of Culture, Media and Creative Industries (CMCI) at King’s stands out in two ways:

First, we approach an exciting subject of media and creative industries from within the rigour and intellectual context of an established, world-ranked, Russell Group University.

Second, our research derives from a multiplicity of related and connected viewpoints. In this way, we are avowedly –and genuinely- interdisciplinary, placing ourselves at the confluence of the arts, humanities and social sciences. 

Methodologically, we draw from sociology, cultural, gender, production and media studies – in addition to the more time-honoured arts and humanities disciplines.  Our approach is proudly transmedial, global and collaborative.

We focus on reflexive analysis with our current research conducted across the specialist themes of:

Cultures of Production and the Creative Economy

Digital Culture and Everyday Cultures

Memory, Heritage and Knowledge Environments

Creativity and Cultural Labour
