Research in Cultural, Media and Visual Studies

Our research spans subjects, centuries and continents. From Renaissance Italian art to current Chinese queer cinema we observe, interrogate and challenge to change and improve the world around us.

We have a strong transnational outlook and interdisciplinarity at our heart. We cross disciplines, institutions and cultures to have a positive impact on all our lives.
