Department of Media, Journalism and Film

Organization profile

Profile Information

Media and Creative Industries are at the heart of rapid economic, social, cultural, technological and political transformations. Our research in Communication, Media and Cultural Studies explores the premises, manifestations and consequences of this change as a world shaped by mass communication is superseded by digital, networked societies through three central, yet overlapping themes: Participation, Practice and History.

Our lively research culture benefits from staff whose work is international in its scope and recognition. We have specialists in the study of British and European, African and North American media cultures. Our staff have held elected office in national and international subject associations including the International Communication Association and the Association of Journalism Education.

The research activities of our staff have been supported and funded by a range of external organisations including the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Heritage Lottery fund, and the AOJE.
