Centre for Culture and the Creative Industries moves into Department of Sociology
Professor Andy Pratt is the new Director of the centre
The Centre for Culture and the Creative Industries (CCCI) has moved into the Department of Sociology.
It follows the split of the Department of Music and the Department of Culture and Creative Industries, which were formerly sister departments within the School of Arts and Social Sciences.
The Department of Culture and Creative Industries has been replaced with CCCI and the Centre for Creative Writing, Translation and Publishing, which has moved into the Department of Journalism.
Professor Andy Pratt (right) is the new Director of CCCI, which has relocated to the Rhind Building, on the sixth floor. Mary Ann Kernan is Director of the Centre for Creative Writing, Translation and Publishing.
The Department of Music, which is currently celebrating its 40th anniversary, is now a standalone department and remains in College Building.
Dr Miguel Mera is the new Head of the Department of Music, taking over from Professor Steve Cottrell, who is on sabbatical for the 2015/16 academic year.
Professor Chris Greer, Head of the Department of Sociology, said: “The incorporation of the Centre for Culture and the Creative Industries into the Department of Sociology is a fantastic development and we continue to go from strength to strength.
“CCCI brings with it world-leading research with outstanding impact and a vibrant educational programme that builds on existing departmental strengths whilst bringing new interests and areas of expertise. Exciting times at City.”
CCCI will be holding a series of events throughout 2016 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of its Culture, Policy and Management MA, which is the oldest programme of its type in the world.
