Dear all,

A timely reminder that there’s a little over a month to get applications in for the PhD fee waivers at the School of Media, Communications and Sociology at the University of Leicester. The deadline for projects is 14th September.


Link and wider details below, but colleagues will forgive the shameless self-promotion of topics that align with my own work here:

Research is invited on the impact of the film trailer as a cultural object globally. This includes historical studies of the trailer, aesthetics, reception, or industrial creative or regulatory contexts. Extending this, work may consider the promotional trailer across geographic and regulatory territories, and the entertainment industry generally, including trailers for other entertainment products (television, videogames, theatre, books, etc.), as well as fan reception and participatory culture therein.


all the best  (and sincerest apologies for cross-posting)
