The Centre for Communication, Politics and Culture (CPC) is an intellectual and multidisciplinary research hub built on the core expertise of the School of Media and Communication.
The CPC research agenda is deeply influenced by matters of national and international interest and underpinned by a commitment to address historical and contemporary issues shaping society.
Since its establishment in 2013 the CPC has become a breeding ground for world-class research in political and advocacy communication; photography, philosophy and writing; cultural politics, human security and the discourses of disaster; the politics of transmigration, social marketing and behavioural change.
As an ideas incubator, the CPC is fostering research into the field of screen culture and the music industry. In an attempt to expand our research endeavour, the CPC has also become home for Latin American and Asian research.
The CPC publishes an interdisciplinary Open Access journal, established in 1963, focusing on the connections between communication, cultural technologies and politics.
Our researchers work on projects that focus on local and global issues shaping our society.People
