Organisation profile

Screen Research is an interdisciplinary group working in screen studies, a broad field that incorporates film, television and digital media technologies. The theme explores screen research in its broadest sense, incorporating comparative studies of historical periods and contexts; a theoretical understanding of screen media; and methodologies including the analysis of text-based and archive material and practice-based work.

The research theme comprises colleagues from across the University, including the Departments of Archaeology and Anthropology; Classics and Ancient History; Drama: Theatre, Film, Television; French; Geographical Sciences; Historical Studies; History of Art; Italian; Music; Politics; Hispanic, Portuguese and Latin American Studies; and Russian.
