Pacific Media Centre

Kia ora tatou and warm Pacific greetings

The Pacific Media Centre - TE AMOKURA - is the only media research and community resource centre of its kind in Aotearoa/New Zealand and has a strategic focus on Māori, Pasifika and ethnic diversity media and community development. It was established by AUT University's Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies in 2007 as part of the Creative Industries Research Institute. It is now part of the School of Communication Studies.

PMC also collaborates with other Asia-Pacific media centres, including the Australian Centre for Independent Journalism and the University of the South Pacific regional journalism programme, engaged in research and cultural production. It develops cultural and research publications, building on the success of the peer-reviewed publication Pacific Journalism Review, (indexed on SCOPUS, Informit, EBSCO, Knowledge Basket and global media databases), Pacific Journalism Monographs and the news monitoring service Pacific Media Watch. It also offers Pacific media studies at postgraduate level, including the JOUR801 Asia-Pacific Journalism Studies course. Click here for more information about Pacific media studies.
