Our Centre for Research in Media and Cultural Studies (CRMCS) was founded in 2000.  In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise 65% of our research was ranked world leading or internationally excellent.  The Centre has two principal strategic aims:

(1) to promote and sustain a lively and inclusive research culture, providing a supportive framework and a sense of collective purpose for those academic staff and postgraduate students at the university whose work is situated within the fields of media, film and cultural studies;

(2) to develop and support research initiatives via collaborative research projects and collaborations with other institutions and organisations.
