Graeme Turner (born 1947) is an Australian professor of Cultural Studies at the University of Queensland, Federation Fellow, Past President of the Australian Academy of the Humanities, Director of the Centre for Critical and Cultural Studies, and Convenor of the ARC Cultural Research Network.

Turner gained a Master's Degree from Queen's University, Canada, and his Doctorate from the University of East Anglia, in the UK. He has taught at the Queensland Institute of Technology (now Queensland University of Technology), the West Australian Institute of Technology (now part of Curtin University), and was Professor of Cultural Studies in the English Department at the University of Queensland before becoming the founding Director of the Centre for Critical and Cultural Studies in 1999. He was elected an Ordinary Member of the Australian Academy of the Humanities in 1997, and was elected President in 2004. From 2001 until 2004 he was a member of the Expert Advisory Panel for Creative Arts and Humanities of the Australian Research Council.

In 2004, Turner was successful in his application for the ARC Cultural Research Network, one of only 24 Research Networks funded by the ARC, while in 2006 he was awarded a Federation Fellowship by the ARC to study "Television in the post-broadcast era: The role of old and new media in the formation of national communities" ARC Federation Fellowship Project .

In his speech to the National Press Club on 3 September 2008, the Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research , Senator the Hon Kim Carr announced that Professor Turner, had been appointed to the Prime Minister's Science, Engineering and Innovation Council (PMSEIC). This makes Turner the only Humanities scholar on the Council, and only the second since the Council's inception (as the Prime Minister's Science Council) in 1989.

He is one of the key figures in the development of cultural and media studies in Australia. His work is used in many disciplines: cultural and media studies, communications, history, literary studies, and film and television studies. Turner's research interests include Australian film and media, issues in Australian Nationalism, popular culture, celebrity, and talkback radio. His current project investigates the role of television in a post-broadcast era increasingly dominated by new media formats such as the Internet.
