IDeoGRAMS Research Group
IDeoGRAMS is the Interdepartmental Group for Research into the Arts Media and Society and was established in 2006 to connect researchers working on issues of cultural studies from across the university. We are highly federal, with researchers working independently or in small groups but coming together for research events, including regular research lunches. We also mentor and support interdisciplinary research students, as seen in our one-day conferences on visual research ethics in 2012 and myths in culture in 2014.
We aim: to establish, build and maintain productive research connections across any members of the University working on links between the arts, media and society; to ensure regular opportunities for the sharing of members’ research at events which cross departments; and to support the development and production of high quality research outputs and events within the group’s individual members as well as in project teams.
