The Centre for Media & Culture Research (CMCR) supports high-quality research across several areas of arts, media and culture.
In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise 85% of our research activities were assessed at International standard or above, with World Class and Internationally Excellent work in the areas of cultural memory, media and war, news, and new media.
Our current work includes projects on global memory, electronic dance cultures, and news coverage of post-Cold War conflicts, an AHRC-funded project with Tate Britain, developing new understandings of museum audiences, and practice-based research on artists' books, experimental film, and photographic self-portraits. For examples of our work and a selection of our latest exhibitions visit our blog.
CMCR staff are on the editorial boards of several leading journals, including Media, Culture and Society, Media, War and Conflict, Philosophy of Photography, and the journal of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music.
The CMCR has a regular programme of seminars, lectures, exhibitions and conferences, and provides six-month research internships for graduates as well as a stimulating research environment for Visiting Research Professors and Research Fellows. Our resources include a theatre, a Digital Media Gallery, and a Media Centre.
