Research

Researchers at the Centre have helped to define the field of cultural policy studies, notably through the International Journal of Cultural Policy Studies and the International Conference on Cultural Policy Research (ICCPR).

Researchers continue to extend and define the field of cultural and media policy and cultural and media research in areas such as evaluation and impact studies, creative industries policy, heritage studies projects, implicit cultural policy, memory studies, media, popular culture and creativity.

Research at the Centre 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.

In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework 90% of our unit's research outputs were rated as world-leading in terms of originality, significance and rigour 4* or judged internationally excellent 3*.
