Research in media stretches across areas of traditional film and television studies, with respect to questions of aesthetics and ideology to new and social media, particularly in terms of field research to journalism and especially in terms of continuums of pre-modern local journalism and hyperlocal coverage today. Currently we support postgraduates in this area engaged in making documentaries, animations and fiction films and developing computer games in respect to ideas of performance. In these instances, we are keen to integrate into the scope of research responses garnered from film festivals and industry contacts.
