Centre of Research in the Arts (CoRA)
CoRA is an interdisciplinary research centre that provides a context for the outstanding research practices in the arts. It includes work from art and design, communication, media and culture, digital media, film, music, photography and publishing. CoRA was launched in September 2020 and is based at the School of Arts at Oxford Brookes University.
The Centre brings together practice, archival, digital and cultural research. It provides a dynamic environment to foster and support the vibrant and successful research culture through the interdisciplinary framework of arts and humanities at Oxford Brookes University.
CoRA hosts an exciting annual programme of events, which includes conferences and research seminars, workshops, exhibitions and community projects. The Centre also acts as a base for the extensive research being done by CoRA scholars (more about that work is available below). CoRA acts as an umbrella for the activities of existing research groups on opera, audience studies, fine art, print culture, popular music, sonic art and film.
