Organisation profile

Royal Holloway is one of the leading Media, Film and Television departments in the UK with an international reputation for the excellence of its research. We are a lively and diverse community of researchers working in a range of areas and employing a variety of theoretical, critical, historical and practice-based approaches.  The research of the unit is focused on the analysis and practice of film, television, digital media and contemporary art. This includes specific interests in television history and technology, screen narrative, Hollywood, Asian and European cinemas, the representation of class, ethnicity and gender, cultures of celebrity and modernist art practices as well as the production of dramas, documentaries and installations. These research interests coalesce into three main research clusters: Television Culture, Screen Narrative and Identity and Place.
