Research in the School of Film and Journalism
The School of Film and Journalism at UWE Bristol has a proven reputation in research excellence.
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 Creative Media Research Group explores the space between craft and experimentation, established media, new forms and platforms, and the languages used to articulate work in those spaces.
The Play Research Group is a forum for the development of research into the cultural significance of play and games.
Beyond the Book
The future of the book is a topic that inflames, excites and inspires in equal measure. This research group is interested in the future form of books, the impact of digital technology, and the critical space pertaining to these issues. Based in practice-led teaching programmes, the group also builds on research completed within REACT’s book and print programme.
Collaborative research projects
The major research project, Bristol and Bath by Design, brings together experts from the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol), University of Bristol and Bath Spa University, working in collaboration with West of England Design Forum (WEDF), Bristol Media, Creative Bath, The West of England Local Enterprise Partnership and REACT, to draw on expertise in design, creative arts, business and law, and mechanical engineering.
Research ethics and governance
The Faculty of Arts, Creative Industries and Education (ACE) has a Faculty Research Ethics Committee committed to promoting high ethical standards in the conduct of research undertaken by its staff and students.
