News Announcement for WFTHN members : from CATHI, De Montford University
Are you a final year undergraduate, MA, PhD student or early career researcher with an interest in archives and archival research in film and TV history?
On Tuesday May 21st 2019 the Cinema and Television History Institute (CATHI) at De Montfort University, Leicester will be hosting a Postgraduate Archives Open Day intended to help you develop your archival research skills, enable you to engage in debates around archiving and archival research, and provide you with an opportunity to network with researchers and curatorial staff from DMU, and other important regional and national film archives. You will be introduced to a range of material from our own unique collections including: the Peter Whitehead Archive, the Hammer Script Archive, the Andrews Davies Archive, the Palace Pictures Archive and the Cinema Museum’s Indian Cinemas Archive.
Guest speakers at this special event will include Natalie Hayton and Katherine Short of De Montfort University Special Collections, Clare Watson from the Media Archive for Central England (MACE) and Wendy Russell from the British Film Institute (BFI).
Entrance is free and refreshments will be provided, but there will be a small charge for an optional networking lunch at a local curry restaurant. Places are limited so advance booking is essential.
We are offering four £50 travel bursaries that are intended to enable promising new scholars to attend Cinema and Television History Research Institute (CATHI) events. These are available to final year undergraduates and MAs who are not yet registered for a PhD. Simply contact Dr Ellen Wright for an application form. A decision will be made by early April.
