Institute for Modern and Contemporary Culture

University of Westminster

The Institute for Modern and Contemporary Culture brings together creative, critical, and committed researchers and postgraduate students from around the world, and functions as a community for its students and staff, as well as a hub for both cross-school collaboration and external partnerships at the University of Westminster. The Institute draws on staff – academics, artists, curators, architects, authors, cultural consultants, and museum professionals – from across the university, who possess research expertise in a range of different transdisciplinary fields. We work with a number of international visiting research fellows, both resident and non-resident, among them curators at major galleries in North America and Europe, as well as world-leading writers and artists. We also host non-stipendiary Junior Visiting Research Fellows who wish to be based in London for part of their doctoral or post-doctoral studies. The Institute further coordinates a series of collaborative projects with major cultural institutions such as the Tate, Whitechapel Gallery, Museum of London, Photographers Gallery, and the Smithsonian Institute, Washington, DC. The Institute coordinates three M.A. programmes at Westminster – Cultural & Critical Studies, Art and Visual Culture, and Museums, Galleries, and Contemporary Culture – and contributes to the M.A.s in Creative Writing: Writing the City, and English Literature: Modern and Contemporary Fictions. We also offer expert Ph.D. supervision.
