Research & engagement
The School has developed a reputation for research that explores how changes in communication impact on the ways we live, work, interact and connect. The School’s research programs explore the history and meaning of niche and popular media; and how media forms and their distribution are transforming content and uses in constantly changing digital media landscapes.

Research centres/groups View
Culture, Media, Economy (CME)
CME as a key research group is a response to the current conjuncture in which new financial and business models, technologies, socio-cultural dynamics and geo-political configurations have radically transformed our understandings and practices of culture, media and economy.
Journalism & Political Communications
The cumulative impact of technological change and its impact on traditional business models represents a fundamental structural change in the way in which the information needs of societies are served.
Screen Histories and Futures Research Program
The Screen Histories and Futures Research Program is a concerted and integrated unit committed to the collaborative study of the history, theory, practice and criticism of digital audio-visual culture.
Environment & Media
Environmental crisis, largely caused by human activity, has produced the greatest challenge of our time. This challenge transcends disciplinary fields.
Gender & Media Lab
Gender & Media Lab focus on the impacts of rapidly transforming industries and digitised cultures, exploring connections between representation, identity, feminised labour and precarious futures.
