Cultural Political Economy Research Centre CPERC
The Cultural Political Economy Research Centre (CPERC) promotes Cultural Political Economy as a trans- and post-disciplinary research paradigm and as a capacity-building resource for the wider academic community within and beyond Lancaster. Cultural Political Economy serves as a principal theoretical orientation and valuable adjunct to other theories and methods that together examine the interrelations among semiosis, imaginaries, political economy broadly conceived, and issues of governance, government, and governmentality. The idea of such a centre emerged from Lancaster's unique learning and researching environment, with its tradition of interdepartmental research collaborations. It was set up within the framework of the Institute for Advanced Studies and is now co-located in the Department of Sociology and the Politics, Philosophy, and Religion Department.
