Research in the Department of Arts and Cultural Industries
The Department has an established reputation, nationally and internationally, for research across a range of disciplines. Academics work closely with community groups, local and national government and industry, so that their research can make a real difference.
Established centres for nationally and internationally recognised research:
Bristol Centre for Linguistics (BCL) at UWE Bristol was established in August 2007 as UWE’s focal point for research in linguistics and on the relation between linguistics and other disciplines.
The Digital Cultures Research Centre is principally concerned with the meaning and uses of media technologies in everyday life, focusing upon pervasive media, play, and user-generated content.
The Regional History Centre promotes research about the history of Britain's South Western counties and in the understanding of regionalism as a dynamic force in the shaping of the domestic and international past.
Collaborative working groups within the Department of Arts and Cultural Industries:
The Film and Television Studies Research Group is comprised of staff and postgraduate students, and its research is spread across a range of areas including film genres; the role of the producer; British cinema; gender, sexuality, ethnicity, class, nation and generation.
The group aims to capture and promote research interest in the Humanities in the period c1760-c1940. It seeks to act as a collaborative forum across the Department, and also looks to provide a platform for partnerships with other scholars and practitioners in the UK.
