CAMEo - Research Institute for Cultural and Media Economies

CAMEo research degrees

Full or part-time PhDs in the Cultural, Creative and Media Industries

  • Do you have an interest in these industries and want to study for a PhD?
  • Do you have an exciting research project that you would like do?
  • Or are you interested in a practice-based PhD, combining work-based research or the production of a cultural artefact with a shorter written thesis?
  • Would you like to work within a dynamic and exciting research institute?

If you are interested in new understandings of the cultural industries, the ‘creative economy’, arts, media and cultural policy, consumer culture dynamics, or the mediation and representation of cultural and economic life, you might want to consider a PhD with the Institute.

CAMEo is an interdisciplinary platform for academic research as well as for collaborations with culture and media practitioners. Together we explore the diverse and complex ways in which cultural and media economies are being defined, valued, enacted, experienced and represented. Our research particularly seeks to foreground issues of participation, sustainability and social justice in cultural and media economies.

We will provide an energetic research environment where you could be working with some of leading researchers in the field producing rigorous intellectual work that is relevant and valuable to a range of cultural, creative and media industry partners.
