Student Bursaries for ‘Breaking the Sound Barrier’

On Saturday June 18 WFTHN are running an event at BFI Southbank examining the relationship between women and sound in film and TV, ‘Breaking the Sound Barrier: Women Sounding Out in British Film & Television’. For more info and ticketing, see here.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of MeCCSA’s Women’s Media Studies Network, we have a small number of bursaries available to PhD students, who live outside London and are researching projects related to women practitioners working in British film and television. The bursary will cover entry to the event, and a contribution to travel expenses in the region of £20-25.
Applicants should send a 300 word statement, noting the title of their PhD project and their institutional affiliation, and outlining how they believe their research would benefit from their attending, to Deborah Jermyn at by 5pm on Wednesday May 25.
