Department of Media and Communication


The Department of Media and Communication explores the emerging technologies changing our media landscape. Our research interests range from drones to mobile and social media culture to data analytics and Netflix streaming. Our screen studies investigate the ways we represent our world through the characters of Star Wars and supernatural cinema to news reporting, the narcotics trade and crime fiction.

As cultural creators spanning fiction, film, music, radio, podcasts, journalism and documentaries, we have a passion for sharing the latest media research. Our well-known commentators provide insight into changes in media industry, culture, history and current affairs. We also work closely with industry partners in health, aging, assistive technologies, Indigenous culture, design, entertainment and cultural curation.
