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explores the premises, manifestations and consequences of this change as a world shaped by mass communication is superseded by digital, networked societies through three central, yet overlapping themes: Participation, Practice and History. 

We have specialists in the study of British and European, African and North American media cultures.
