Media, Technology and Culture
The purpose of the research group is to deepen our understanding of the interaction of media technologies with society and culture, with the overall aim of enhancing both.
We have expertise that spans the humanities and our work is correspondingly multi- and inter-disciplinary. Our common focus is on questioning society's relationship with technology and in promoting technology designs that serve human purposes. We aim to be responsive to technological change and innovation while retaining a concern with long established questions about meaning, value and the kind of world we want to live in.
Our research activities fall into five clusters, listed below, and our staff are all mobile between them.
- Society and culture
- Music/Creative practice
- Narrative arts
- Computer games
- Human-computer interaction
We welcome enquiries from visiting researchers, post-graduate students and other collaborators with interests in any of these fields.
