About our programmes

Research in Digital Media at the University of Hull is very wide ranging and interdisciplinary and covers topics as diverse as social media, e-learning, digital curation and human-computer interaction. We employ a real-world approach, which makes a contribution to the creative economy nationally and internationally.

Digital Creativity

Our postgraduate research programmes in Digital Media offer students the opportunity to critically and creatively engage with a diverse range of the very latest issues and developments in digital media. Cutting edge facilities and equipment, including Apple Mac-based laboratories, professional software and industry-standard digital media production facilities, are available to you 24/7. You will be guided by leading experts who will support you when it comes to making critical choices about the direction of your studies.

Some of our current areas of research include the way that humans and computers interact, virtual environments, digital archiving, eLearning, the use of social media in activism, semantic web technologies and cyber security. Our programmes are interdisciplinary in scope and reflect our commitment to socially engaged research. We support students’ development into articulate and critical thinkers who are acutely aware of the ways in which their work engages with current critical scholarship, new and emerging technology, social issues and debates within the contemporary media culture landscape.

Media and Memory Research Initiative (MaMRI)

The Media and Memory Research Initiative’s mission is to serve as a centre of excellence for research on the collection, preservation, interpretation, and dissemination of mediated memories, especially those that may be vulnerable due to institutional neglect or association with emerging areas of interest. MaMRI is dedicated to serving its community of researchers by providing both a physical environment for people working on related areas as well as online resources for the presentation of research on mediated memories. It also facilitates other activities related to these purposes. This research initiative aims to take a proactive pedagogical stance to help establish the study of memory in an evermore-mediated global culture.
