Research in Screen and Media Studies

Communication is the most fundamental of all human activities and is an expression of culture and identity in both its manifestation and practice. Our research in Screen and Media is both critical and creative: we write books, we make television, we build websites, we are involved in policy-making. Our research clusters around the following themes: media and creative industries, media literacy and ethics, digital cultures and storytelling, popular culture and questions of identity, theory and practice of documentary film-making, screenwriting and animation, NZ film and television, game studies, and audience research.
