Screen Research Group
The Screen Research Group provides a space for all kinds of screen-related research.
The Screen Research Group is intended to a broad group including researchers in cinema, television, journalism, social and digital media, animation and other screen media.
The group provides a space for all kinds of screen-related research, including both theory and practice, to develop, be supported, shared and nurtured. We want to facilitate discussions and collaboration that enables screen research to thrive at York St John. This includes supporting postgraduate research students to be involved in the group and be part of the wider research culture in their subject areas.
At the outset, we anticipate the group will be broad, but may begin to develop thematic strands as conversations grow.
The group will seek to:
- Organise seminars/sharing of research, identify potential visiting scholars in the subject area(s)
- Support the growth and visibility of screen-related research at York St John and externally
- Foster collaboration and cooperation in the preparation of outputs and funding bids
- Identify key thematic strands in our screen-related research
- Mentor staff and postgraduate researchers
- Function as an advocacy group for our subject area in the face of a hostile environment towards screen-related study and research
- Help develop the REF submission in the area
Get in touch
The group would welcome proposals and new members interested in any area of screen studies, practice-led, theoretical, industrial, including cinema, games, television, journalism, social and digital media, animation and other screen media.
