School of English Literature, Language and Linguistics



Research in film takes place across several Schools in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.

We place an emphasis on evidence and politics, drawing on archival sources to identify the historical forces that shape both film-making and the institutions of film. Our expertise ranges from the early years of cinema to contemporary stories of migration, black cinema and postcolonial perspectives.

Researchers in our film cluster deliver research-led teaching in the School, and our students have opportunities to study film and film-making at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
