Research in the School of Communication and Creative Arts
The School of Communication and Creative Arts (SCCA) at Deakin University conducts research in the broad areas of media and communication, and the creative and performing arts.
Its researchers are active contributors to the academic, cultural, public and creative spheres, both local and global.
Research outputs range from books and novels, performances, exhibitions and films, academic journal articles and conference presentations.
A number of staff members are editors of refereed journals or sit on international editorial boards.
They are successful in gaining research grants and consultancies and seek to be at the forefront of theoretical, applied, interdisciplinary and practice-based research in their fields.
School researchers are closely affiliated with three research centres: Centre for Memory, Imagination and Invention, Deakin Creative and Deakin Motion.Lab.
The School welcomes enquiries from the media, publishers and prospective research students.
