Institute for Media and Creative Industries.


Loughborough University London is a part of technē (; a consortium comprising nine universities in London and the South-East. Around 55 AHRC studentships are awarded each year. To apply for a technē scholarship you must first be accepted by a technē university.

Loughborough University London is now taking applications.

technē supports outstanding students pursuing the ‘craft' of research through innovative, interdisciplinary and creative approaches. technē provides:
• An environment for students who wish to be intellectually innovative and experimental
• Varied disciplinary and interdisciplinary training and networking opportunities

Loughborough is a top-ten rated research-intensive university in England (REF2014). By choosing a doctoral programme from the Institute for Media and Creative Industries you'll work alongside academic leaders in their fields. The Institute has a strong interest in the relationships between media, communication and technological, political, social and cultural change. We explore a range of topics around communication for social change, political and economic communication and movements, social media and activism in contemporary and historical contexts.

Much of our research is collaborative and interdisciplinary, connecting to local and global communities and organisations. London is a world leading hub for media and creative and cultural industries and an ideal location for students to expand their knowledge, expertise and networks.

Project Detail:

We invite project proposals that intersect with our Institute's research strengths with an emphasis on memory and history, culture and heritage, alternative knowledges and epistemologies of the South, storytelling, engagement with the arts, creative industries and creative economy, and issues of social justice and inclusion. Our academics cover a range of research interests including analogue and digital media and communication structures, roles and practices across the creative and cultural industries in diverse regions including the UK and Europe, Middle East, Africa, South and South East Asia, and Latin America. Please review individual Institute staff profiles. We invite proposals on any related topics. We have experience in conducting empirical research locally and across the globe. Methodologically the Institute is particularly strong in the use of ethnographic and participatory research methods to understand complex processes of change in rich and holistic ways. We are equally interested in applications exploring topics relevant to our east London location and to global and global South perspectives on media, communication and creative industries.
