Members of its interdisciplinary staff are engaged in a wide variety of projects, from the study of China’s ‘nation branding’, to the analysis of electronic dance music.

Other current areas of interest include the Catalan independence crisis, protest movements, cultures of surveillance and the ‘deep’ state, the rise of the far-right, resistance to austerity in Southern Europe, race and the postcolonial, and investigative journalism.
