The Media and Culture Research Centre was formed in 2018 in order to support a broad range of empirical and theoretical research related to the expansive field of the Media and Communication subject area.
The broad aim of the centre is to research the crucial relationships between media, culture, politics, technology and society.
Media are increasingly interwoven into everyday life, both with the production and consumption of cultural content but also in the formation and maintenance of institutions. Therefore, to understand societal problems, challenges and opportunities we must understand the role media play in our culture and society.
The MCRC is an interdisciplinary research centre whose aim is to undertake this work and whose main areas of specialisation are:
- Media technical change & culture
- Cultural citizenship
- Cultural & Media policy
- Cultural Value
