Research in the Dept of Music and Media is conducted in the disciplines of Film and Digital Media, Music, Sound Recording and Performance. Our research within these areas is particularly distinguished by strategic emphasis and the development of innovative relationships between theory, analysis and creative practice in the arts from the late nineteenth century to the present day. Some of our research explores new interdisciplinary or multi‐disciplinary methods and topics. We support and value both the work of the individual scholar and collaborative research projects. Examples of the latter include those involving other areas of expertise in the University (with particular interests in Art‐Technology interactions), and those which are based in relationships with external partners in the creative and sound recording industries, at regional, national and international level. The existing programme in Digital Media Arts integrates the study of contemporary film‐making and game design, as well as film history and games studies into the broader study of culture and the mass media. We also consider a wider context of contemporary screen‐ and digital media‐related activity, including digital culture and multimedia production.
