media@uea draws together the University of East Anglia's unique range of media expertise, connecting interdisciplinary perspectives from the Schools of Film, Television and Media Studies, Law, Political, Social and International studies, Economics, International Development, Languages and Communication Studies, and Literature and Creative Writing.

Each School contributes a wealth of skills and experience. Our School of Film, Television and Media, for example, is one of the UK's longest established media schools, while our Law School has one of the largest concentrations of media, IP and IT law-related researchers in the country.

Projects our researchers are working on include British television history, the production and consumption of cinema in an international context, intellectual property and IT law in the media, political communication and media's role in international development.

media@uea has been instrumental in setting up CREATe, the RCUK-funded centre on the creative industries. This consortium, which includes the Universities of Glasgow, Strathclyde, Edinburgh, Nottingham, Goldsmith's and St Andrews is focused on research into copyright and new business models that will help the UK's creative industries thrive and innovate within the digital media landscape.

media@uea is also linked to a number of national and international organisations dedicated to media research and production, including the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association, the ESRC Centre for Competition Policy at the UEA, and SeaMedia, an initiative led by the School for Political, Social and International Studies to develop a youth internet platform in the EU's two seas region.

media@uea regularly welcome speakers from key media organisations such as Ofcom, BBC, Channel 4 News, the Guardian and ITN.
