About us

The Centre for Critical and Creative Cultures is dedicated to exploring the intersections of creativity and criticism in a range of disciplines, contexts and media. The Centre’s work is concerned with inter- and multi-disciplinarity, with multimedia, mixed media and digital and intermedial literary/art works, and with the various forms that knowledge, its presentations and representations, can take. It has specific interests in areas including word and image, film, comics, creative writing, theatre, performance and performativity.

The activities of the Centre bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines and institutions, as well as practitioners in many cultural fields. We are keen to make connections nationally and internationally, with those inside and outside the university, and to explore the forms that both creativity and critical work can take.
