Centre for Media and Culture Research
The Centre for Media and Culture Research supports high-quality work across the arts, media and culture
The centre supports high-quality research across several areas of the arts, media and culture. It sits as part of LSBU's Institute for Social Science Research (ISSR) and has close academic links with the School of Law and Social Sciences and its Department of Education.
Current work includes projects on global memory, electronic dance cultures, and news coverage of post-Cold War conflicts. A major AHRC-funded project with Tate Britain, called Tate Encounters, is developing new understandings of museum audiences and practice-based research on artists' books, experimental film and photographic self-portraits.
LSBU emerged as a top modern university in London after 73% of its research was given the two highest ratings for 'impact' (reach and significance) - Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014.
CMCR staff are on the editorial boards of several leading journals including:
- Media, Culture and Society
- Media, War and Conflict
- Philosophy of Photography
- International Association for the Study of Popular Music Journal
The Centre for Media and Culture Research hosts a regular programme of seminars, lectures, exhibitions and conferences. Read more in our What's on. It provides six-month research internships for graduates and a stimulating research environment for Visiting Research Professors and Research Fellows.
For examples of our work and a selection of our latest exhibitions read the CMCR blog.
