LCC research community: insatiably curious

The research community at LCC is made up of world-reowned practitioners and theorists specialising in film, current practices and histories of photography, communication studies, sound arts, graphic and information design and spatial design.

Our research is supported by collaborations with industry, commerce and the cultural sector, funding from UK research councils, and through international partnerships.

LCC offers a supportive and exciting research environment for graduate researchers with seminars, lectures and events. In recent years graduate researchers have curated exhibitions, hosted conferences and produced publications of their work.
