New Media and Film (Structured PhD [Inter-Institutional])

College of Arts, Social Sciences, & Celtic Studies,
Huston School of Film & Digital Media | School of Humanities

Course overview

This new research initiative promises to address areas of great significance for new digital media, the art of cinema and for culture. The impact of digital technologies on the way audio visual works are produced and, importantly, how they are received and understood by audiences, will be at the centre of media research for some time. Contemporary work in this area is at the leading edge of study linking digital media to the traditions of narrative and image making. It aims to integrate theoretical concerns with the impact of digital media on cultural and social expression with practical concerns and the media industries. Whilst academically strong, the research should lead to new concepts that are applicable to practice.
