Explore the power, possibility and value of arts, media, cultural and creative industries. What impact do they have in the world? How can we use them to change lives for the better? How will we navigate the future? What will your role be?
PhDs in cultural policy studies, creative industries, and media and communication.
Researchers within the Centre continue to extend and define the field of cultural policy and cultural research in areas such as evaluation and impact studies, creative industries policy, heritage projects, implicit cultural policy, memory, media and creativity.
Our research is closely integrated with teaching – our research interests are directly informed by our teaching and vice versa. We have an outstanding reputation for the quality of our research and we foster a dynamic research culture within the Centre and beyond.
We think culture matters. It is important and meaningful, of course. It can have material effects. Culture is built out of materials and matter (natural and man-made materials) and that matters too. We also often ask in our Centre what's the matter with culture? What's wrong or what's right with it and how can we make it matter more.
