Research in the Department of Marketing
Within the Department of Marketing at the University of Birmingham, there is a vibrant mix of researchers, all driven by real questions that face business and society. Research in the department is organised into three key groups, with each group focused around specific themes.
Group lead: Christina Goulding, Professor in Marketing
Members of the Culture Research Group are interested in a range of topics drawing from the broader, diverse field of the arts. Specific research areas include heritage, issues of culture and authenticity, art and artists as brands, the production and consumption of art, film production and reception, film distribution and exhibition, social responsibility in arts marketing, television, dark tourism, embodiment, visual arts and the market, the production and consumption of place, space and time, myth and the marketplace, festivals, the intersection of arts and technology, how emerging artists use new technology and sub-cultural and non-mainstream consumption.

Marketing innovations and consumer science
Group leads: Grigorios Lamprinakos and Miriam McGowan
The marketing innovations and consumer science research group brings together researchers across the marketing field who are interested in innovative marketing practice, innovation itself, digital and technological innovations, as well as methodological innovations in marketing research. The group also has a focus on psychological theories as a means to understand consumers and their behaviour. Researchers in the group use a range of research methods but with some concentration on quantitative approaches to research problems.
