Cultural, Media and Visual Studies
We are born to communicate. Through objects, images, sounds and words we declare our passions, entertain each other and influence the world around us. Cultural, Media and Visual Studies examines and makes sense of all this activity.
Our work spans centuries - from Renaissance paintings to posthumanism and cyberbodies. As much as the "what" we ask the "why" and the "who". Why do things that way? Who benefits? And who doesn't?
Staff have distinct specialisations but work as one community - sharing ideas and approaches and working across international boundaries.
