New Funded PhD Opportunity: https://www.ulster.ac.uk/doctoralcollege/find-a-phd/1045687
Cinematic Arts at Ulster University is a new and vibrant area of research that combines theory and practice of moving image arts in the new digital media age. Applicants can propose cinema studies or practice-based research topics and/or related research questions that unearth and celebrate diverse new filmmaking voices, such as women, LGBT+, neurodiverse, indigenous and people of colour.
The Cinematic Arts PhD at Ulster University recognises long-held racial, gender-based and colonialist hegemonic and white-dominated prejudices in the study of neglected cinemas of diversity and encourages all interested applications to submit proposals to address the lack of scholarship in these areas: cinemas of the Global South, indigenous, black and MENA cinemas, i.e. study proposals beyond the dominant Western ‘global’ Hollywood and European economies of production, distribution and exhibition. Methodologies informed by post-colonial, critical race, Indigenous, feminist, and/or queer thought and the theory/history of moving image media and culture in the context of the Global South are particularly welcome.
Proposals are welcomed in a wide range of areas relating to staff research interests. With a combined experience of over fifty years in filmmaking, television production, animation and the creative industries, our experienced team of internationally established, research-active staff are able to offer supervision across a wide range of subjects and themes, from film history and national cinemas to contemporary filmcraft and emerging virtual reality technologies.
Where research proposals span various disciplines, a supervisory team can be assembled across schools and faculties to meet the needs of the projects. Our Diverse New Filmmaking Voices in Cinema & TV PhD provides you with an opportunity to study a range of specialist topics within the areas of onscreen representation, themes and narratives; creative leadership and filmmaking project teams; industry access and opportunities; and audience development.
Proposals are sought in the following areas of staff expertise: cinemas of the Global South, transnational cinema/screens, marginalised communities in pop culture; filmmaking collectives; countering hegemonic narratives; factual and fictional forms, practices and relations; filmmakers that have been diminished or misrepresented; and political oppositional cinema and TV. Applicants are invited to make contact with us in advance of application to discuss the feasibility of their chosen topic.
Our experienced team of internationally established, research-active staff have the critical theoretical experience required to lead the supervision of a research degree in Political and Resistance Media. Their recent publications include: Boody Women: Women Directors of Horror (2022); Alternative Media in Contemporary Turkey: Sustainability, Activism, and Resistance (2018); Make America Hate Again: Trump-Era Horror & The Politics of Fear (2020); Resist! Protest Media and Popular Culture in the Brexit-Trump Era (2020); Social Movements and their Technologies: Wiring Social Change (2016); and The Revolution will be Hacktivated (2016).
