UoA 36

Research in this unit contributes to the understanding of our contemporary society through the study of our media, its content and its audiences, as well as our changing patterns of consumption and cultural production. One of the major challenges of our age is that of extending and deepening democracy, and much of the unit’s research is oriented towards that challenge.

Collaborative projects are underway internationally, including with colleagues in Australia, Belgium, China, Denmark, Greece, Sweden and the USA.

Researchers work with a wide range of organisations such as the BBC, the British Library, the Dart Centre for Journalism and Trauma and the Chartered Institute of Public Relations, among others.
