There are four key areas which define our research at Strathclyde:
- political communications
- social media
- media, health, wellbeing and trauma
Within this, we have particular strengths in the analysis of the UK/Scottish media landscape and our staff – and postgraduate students on both taught and research programmes – work closely with a wide range of external partners.
Some of our recent and continuing research partnerships include:
- collaborative PhDs with Glasgow Women’s Library and with Scottish Football Association
- a funded workshop series on Tackling Gendered Inequalities in Scottish News, funded by Royal Society of Edinburgh, in partnership with Engender, Women 50/50, Zero Tolerance, Women in Journalism and Scottish Women in Sport
- a workshop on Gender Based Violence and Syrian Refugees, in partnership with Anadolu University (Turkey) funded by the British Council
