Our research at CIMS comprises various perspectives, methodologies and theoretical frameworks underpinned by a shared interest in interdisciplinary explorations of cultural identity and cultural memory. The Institute seeks to bring together different approaches in an innovative way and to engage with both the academic community and the wider public.
