Why choose this course?

The Humanities Media Research Group brings together researchers within the School of Humanities that work in the areas of film, television, media, journalism and cultural studies. Its focus is on exploring film and television, as well as other forms of media in relation to its cultural environment. In close relation to other Humanities subjects, research in the Humanities Media Research Group explores the media texts, histories and conceptual frameworks that inform our understanding of the content, aesthetics and context of modern media more generally and film and television in particular. Many research projects explore current trends and developments within the media landscape, such as gender issues in Horror film and the rise of spectacular cinema and television. Researchers in the group also explore specific national cinemas, for example Spanish and Latin American cinema as well as transnational media and post-colonial theories. Our research ethos is tolerant and pluralistic, reflecting the fact that our areas of strength are diverse and wide ranging, not limited to one specific area. Apart from more traditional forms of research and the publication of monographs, researchers within the group have also started to integrate innovative methodologies, such as the use of video essays, into their research. Humanities media research is carried out beyond the borders of the subject with a range of interdisciplinary collaborations, with a strong focus on cultural, aesthetic and socio-political aspects of media research. You can find out more on ongoing research in the Projects section.
