Our research areas
Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI)
CAMRI is committed to the study of the media at an international and comparative level as well as nationally. We have long-established strengths in the political economy of the media, in media history, media policy and audiences. We have centres for the study of the media in China, in the Arab world, in Africa and in India. We are interested in questions of creativity, in flows of information and populations globally, in the use of new technologies and social media and political and social change. With 25 staff we can provide supervision across the spectrum of research interests and approaches in media, communication and culture.
