Course Summary

This course explores your research interests in communication, film and media, supported by the expertise of our staff, on our PhD programme in Cambridge. You will be allocated two supervisors with additional staff members available if necessary. Our supervisors are experienced in most areas of film, media and popular culture, with a strong focus on digital media theory and practice, network culture and media research, cinema and sexuality, violence and spectatorship, contemporary European cinema, television genres, and popular music. We host and take part in many research-oriented events for staff and postgraduate students, including regular Faculty and departmental research seminars, book launches, gallery events, film screenings and international conferences. Our seminars will give you the chance to present papers in a supportive setting. We are also key contributors to the Faculty’s Anglia Research Centre in Media & Culture (ARC Media) and the Story Lab Research Institute, who organize many events that you are welcome to attend, or even contribute to. These networks, along with our online environment, will help you connect with other research students from a range of disciplines. You could also benefit from financial support – we allocate a substantial sum every year towards postgraduate travel and conference expenses, as well as some bursaries.
