Culture in Society

This area of research focus explores the relationships between cultural production and cultural consumption by interrogating the ways in which audiences, governments, markets, organisations, traditional media, and digital institutions construct value and meaning from creative processes and products.

Culture in this sense encompasses the arts, creative industries, and experiences, such as festivals and events. It also shares an interest in key questions and developments in the area of film, television and new media - for example, changing modes of distribution and consumption, the impact of politics on culture, and the changing relation between theory and practice.
