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 research proposals on the theme of memories of communication, social movements and change. There is a growing interest in decolonising archives and historical collections that constitutes a rich opportunity and a challenge. Such initiatives search for creating paths in which a diversity of voices is considered and take part in the construction of historical narratives. We look for candidates looking to recovering and systematising historical documents from experiences of communication and social change in the Global South, fostering dialogues with the Global North. The research project must search for the constitution of bodies of knowledge that contemplate hegemonic and regularly marginalised voices, contribute to the conservation of memory of the appropriation of communication and media within social and popular movements, improving access and readability of productions coming from the grassroots.
