Creative Industries

The social, cultural and economic value of local, national and global creative industries is acknowledged in the work of Media Research. Creative industries research is characterised by interests in the histories, economics and organisation of production, audiences and cultural consumption, processes of creative development, and the intersections between academic work and the professional media industries. The scope of this research engages with a range of creative sectors but with a particular emphasis on broadcast media, publishing and film industries. Work in these areas explores the dynamics and economics of global entertainment, manifestations of sector interdependence, communities of practice, screenwriting, narrative and storytelling, media industry practice and education, and the development and fostering of creativity in creative industry workers.
