Strategic Research Scholarship: Archiving the Past: New Zealand's National Identity and the Moving Image


The Film and Media Studies Programmes, School of English, Film, Theatre, and Media Studies, propose a Strategic Research Scholarship for a PhD project in conjunction with The New Zealand Film Archive in Wellington, New Zealand, which offers the opportunity for innovative and nationally important archival work. The specific focus of the archival research will be on the issue of imaging or representing National Identity in relation to Place, Space, Cultural and Political Identity. Suggested areas of focus may include, but are not restricted to:


Archiving the Past: An Exploration of National/Maori Identity in Film and Television in New Zealand.


Destination New Zealand: Archival Research into the Cinematic Representation of Landscape, Place and People.


Documenting the Past: Archival Research into the New Zealand Documentary. 


The Domestic Past: An Analysis of the importance of Home Movies to the Imagined Community of New Zealand. 


 The Family as Represented in New Zealand Private Film and Video Collections. 


Applicants are expected to have a first class honours degree (or equivalent) and skills and research experience appropriate for the topic. The scholarship is valued at $20,000 per annum, plus a contribution to tuition fees. Students from New Zealand and overseas are encouraged to apply.


The closing date for applications is 17 July 2006
