This course is designed to provide students with a range of advanced media theories, methodologies and research frameworks to carry out sophisticated research. It focuses on research theories relevant to the exploration of cultures and requires students to carry out activities that relate to contemporary media research and, where relevant, draw their major project dissertation or creative work closer to questions around research in the 21st Century. A major theme running through the course is the historical, cultural and social significance of the media as one of the most important contemporary topics debated in both academic research circles and the public sphere.
