Awards Success

08 Mai 2007

Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies researchers have won four out of eight highly-competitive national awards.

26 bids had been shortlisted in the UK-wide Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and BBC Pilot Knowledge Exchange Programme Scheme..

The scale of the success has delighted researchers in the School. "We’ve worked with the BBC a number of times before, and we see ourselves as a UK leader in research that combines democratic ideals and scholarship with media practice. So it’s nice to have out efforts so clearly recognised," said Professor Justin Lewis, Deputy Head of School, who is involved with one of the projects.

The scheme enables collaborative research and development in the arts and humanities. Bids were designed to meet both the research council’s research objectives as well as making a direct policy input into British broadcasting.

The School’s projects are:
