The Griffith Centre for Cultural Research (GCCR), established in 2003 continues to drive theoretical and practical frontiers on the patterns of human knowledge, belief, and behaviours.
GCCR prides itself on the rich and diverse range of Humanities and Sociological research hosted by the Centre. GCCR is relatively unique in terms of the disciplinary interests it supports and nurtures.
The central aim of the Centre is to contribute to the development of relevant social and cultural policy, stimulate study, debate and education into all aspects of cultural understanding.
Areas of strength:
- Australian and international media and journalistic practice
- Cultural sociological approaches to identity and consumption
- Theories of texts, material cultures and contexts
- National and trans-national history and the circulation of ideas
The research of GCCR members is accommodated within four discrete research programs:
- Media Journalism and the Public Sphere
- Identities Communities and Practices
- Text and Context
- Transnational Histories
