With over 70% of our academic staff research active the Department of Media, Culture and Language has a vibrant research culture. Our four research centres are roughly designed around academic programmes, but with growing trans-disciplinary and interdisciplinary awareness.

The diversity of research projects (individual as well as group) across these centres reflects the varied interests of their members. Researchers strike a rich balance between scholarship aimed at pushing the frontiers of their disciplines and projects which are clearly interventionist in nature, seeking to solve a specifically identified problem.

PhD students work within specific Research Centres with sample details of current student research. For information on our postgraduate degrees please see our courses page or visit the individual research centre pages above for further opportunities on MPhil and PhD research.
