Personal profile

Research interests

Albertine Fox is Lecturer in French Film at the University of Bristol. She is currently developing a book project on listening spaces and the face-to-face encounter in documentaries from the Francophone world. Her first monograph, Godard and Sound: Acoustic Innovation in the Late Films of Jean-Luc Godard (Bloomsbury, 2017/2020), re-evaluates the multimedia work of the Swiss-French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard from an auditory perspective, expanding current typologies of film sound and prompting new debates about the relationship between music, sound, the moving image, and the film spectator. Since 2018, Albertine has published three peer-reviewed articles in MIRAJ, French Screen Studies, and Paragraph on works by the Belgian filmmaker Chantal Akerman, encompassing installation art (Maniac Shadows), short film (Trois Strophes sur le nom de Sacher), documentary (Sud), and her musical collaboration with her former partner, the cellist Sonia Wieder-Atherton. Albertine has also completed a chapter on Akerman’s documentary De l’autre côté, published in Chantal Akerman: Afterlives (Legenda, 2019), co-edited by Marion Schmid and Emma Wilson. Most recently, Albertine has published an interview and collaboration with the Lebanese filmmaker Corine Shawi in Journal of Middle East Women’s Studies, and she is preparing a further article and short essay on lesbian visibility in Lebanese cinema alongside her research for the book.  

In 2014, Albertine was awarded the Susan Hayward Prize by the Association for Studies in French Cinema, and in 2012 she was awarded the R.H. Gapper Postgraduate Essay Prize by the Society for French Studies.


Supervisory interests: Albertine is open to supervising PhD candidates on a range of topics in the broad areas of French and Francophone cinema and documentary film studies, encompassing any of the areas outlined under ‘Keywords’.
