It is my pleasure to welcome you to the School of Culture and Communication on behalf of all staff in the School.
Our School is a thriving research centre for critical thinking in the humanities. This agenda is led by world-leading scholars whose fields of research include literary and cultural studies, art history, cinema and performance, media and communication and Australian Indigenous studies. The School is also host to a range of funded research concentrations, such as the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, the Australian Centre, the Centre for Advancing Journalism and the Research Unit in Public Cultures and the Transformative Technologies Research Unit. More broadly, our academics publish, speak and blog on topics as diverse as romanticism, poetry, Asian popular culture, digital media, climate change, network societies, gender and sexuality, racism, cosmopolitanism, and contemporary arts.
One of the largest Schools in the Faculty of Arts, we contribute exciting majors and subjects to the Bachelor of Arts, as well as offering unique Masters level courses that lead towards professional vocations in publishing, writing, museums and galleries, other arts and media institutions. Our extensive doctoral program includes coursework, as well as many opportunities to participate in reading groups, seminars, conferences and other events that augment the intellectual values of the School.
Our School considers the public life of the humanities an enduring tradition that enriches contemporary society, and we have many community and industry partnerships through which we engage with a wider audience. Explore the School website to discover more about our courses, research programs, graduate seminars, and cultural events.
