The School conducts cutting edge, inter-disciplinary research in journalism, media and cultural studies. We have attracted major research awards from the main funding councils (such as the Arts and Humanities and the Economic and Social Research Councils).
We are also regularly commissioned to carry out research for professional and industry organisations (e.g. the BBC, Independent Television Commission and National Union of Journalists) as well as for regulatory and governmental bodies (such as the Welsh Assembly, Electoral Commission and European Union).
In addition to these research groups the school is involved in cross-school initiatives. The Chronic Disorders of Consciousness Group (led from within JOMEC) involves working with colleagues in history, law, philosophy, and sociology as well as colleagues from the medical school developing a medical humanities approach to 'the vegetative state'.
The Centre for Interdisciplinary Film & Visual Culture Research (IFVCR) brings together a range of scholars whose work focuses on the many aspects of film and visual culture research.
The above groups are complemented by additional expertise within JOMEC in fields such as: Audience and fan studies; Children and the media; Feminism, Gender and Sexuality Studies; and cinema, genre and new media. The School also includes staff with expertise in a wide range of research methods.
