The objective of the Centre for Critical and Cultural Studies (CCCS) is to develop humanities research within the University and to promote its benefits within the wider community.
Australian work within the broad fields of critical and cultural studies is on the cutting edge of contemporary humanities research internationally. Within the 'new humanities' - literary and critical theory, film and media studies, and cultural studies - research in critical and cultural studies is a key area and has played a crucial role in extending our capacity to understand our social, political, and cultural environments.
Researchers in the Centre are examining a wide variety of issues and fields, from an exploration of how information technology is changing the gendered experience of the work/home division, to an international study of post-broadcast television and new media.
The CCCS was established in 2000 with the support of the Vice-Chancellor's Strategic Development fund and the Faculty of Arts. The Centre acknowledges the funding support of a number of organisations including the Australian Research Council, the Office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) and The University of Queensland Early Career Researcher Grant Scheme.
The CCCS is also the location of the ARC Federation Fellowship held by Professor Graeme Turner, an international project examining the role of post-broadcast television and new media in the construction of national communities.
