Research in the Department of Creative Arts is committed to diverse intellectual traditions and interdisciplinarity. Our research in media, performance, film, television, music, theatre, and culture focuses on three key themes:

  • Transnational flows, media, and audiences
  • Communities, identity, and political agency
  • Critical production and performance studies

The Department of Creative Arts hosts a regular research seminar series and is home to a thriving Practice-as Research (PaR) group that meets throughout the year. Our research and evaluation work has been funded by Arts and Humanities Research Council, British Academy, Leverhulme Trust, Arts Council, and a range of organisations that include The Vegan Society, Wakefield Council and Warrington Borough Council. Researchers in the department work with local organisations such as Tate Liverpool, FACT, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Burscough Community Farm and The Bluecoat. The Department of Creative Arts is home to the AHRC funded Multispecies Storytelling Network and the Centre for Human Animal Studies.

Vital to our culture is the next generation of research talent. We welcome applications to our range of taught postgraduate and PhD programmes of study. To discuss your postgraduate research, please contact one of our postgraduate coordinators: Dr Hannah Andrews.
