Special Interest Groups

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are at the core of the BAM Community. SIGs enable you to connect, collaborate and communicate with your colleagues in a highly effective manner with leading edge thinking, research and teaching in your discipline.

Each SIG has a range of activities and events that serve their membership, details of which can be found on individual SIG pages. 

Please find here more information on how to get involved in your SIG.


Corporate Governance

Corporate governance is viewed as being about all aspects of the control of organisations, and the interests which organisations serve. Specific areas of governance include managerial remuneration and the composition of boards of directors but it is clear that corporate governance refers more widely to systems of finance, ownership and regulation.


Cultural and Creative Industries

CCI SIG explores the challenges faced in the cultural and creative industries to maximise the impact of research and build a research community across the arts, humanities and social sciences. We are an inclusive space that facilitates collaboration, research innovation and funding opportunities to advance our understanding of the cultural and creative industries.
