Research matters

Our research informs our teaching and learning at all levels, and aims to connect people within and across disciplines, cultures and communities.

The research of the department is focused on the analysis and practice of film, television, digital media and contemporary art.

This includes specific interests in:

  • television, history, technology and aesthetics
  • screen narrative and screenwriting
  • Hollywood, Asian, European cinemas
  • national, Transnational and Diasporic cinemas
  • the representation of class, ethnicity, gender and sexuality
  • cultures of celebrity
  • modernist art practices
  • production of dramas, documentaries and installations.

These research interests blend into three main research clusters: Television Culture, Screen Narrative, and Identity and Place.
