Our key strengths are the work of our staff in digital culture, media and persuasive communication and creative theory and practice (practice-as-research).
We have particularly strong relationships within the media and creative industries sector in Wales, and also engage with the creative economy more generally, within the UK and beyond. This informs several aspects of our research activities, as well as helping to promote our work.
At a community level, we regularly participate in projects and developments that not only give valuable opportunities to our students, but also help in terms of overall impact and awareness of our activities. The companies and organisations with whom we have collaborated recently include BAFTA Cymru, independent TV company Cwmni Da, NoFit State Circus and Carers Outreach.
We have a thriving and friendly research culture. Our weekly research series features Bangor colleagues, postgraduate students, and researchers and practitioners from across the UK and beyond in a supportive, if critical, environment. We also invite special guests, visiting scholars, and others to present on their research and practice.
