Our latest Faculty of Arts at Home film ties in with the Resonate Festival, the University of Warwick’s year-long programme of events for City of Culture, and its focus on Community throughout the month of July. Kat Pearson (PhD Student in Film and Television Studies) introduces her research into UK Cities of Culture and television, and the role that the television archive plays in placemaking. Kat discusses how she worked with the Media Archive for Central England’s collection of historic television to curate screenings of footage of Foleshill for community members, and to produce a film reel about Coventry’s architecture and public art for the Metropolis exhibition which opened in the city this month. She also discusses her role in the production of BBC4’s documentary ‘Coventry Cathedral: Building for New Britain’.

Professor Anne Gerritsen is among 84 new Fellows announced by the prestigious institution, which was founded in 1902 as the UK’s national academy for the humanities and social sciences.
A British Academy Fellowship is one of the highest honours available to UK academics, awarded to researchers who, in the view of their peers, have made a distinguished academic contribution to humanities or social science research.
The School of Creative Arts, Performance and Visual Cultures is delighted to announce that Yvette Hutchison has been promoted to the role of Professor. Yvette has made a significant contribution to the disciplines of theatre and performance studies during her career thus far, particularly in the areas of theatre in the African context, South African Theatre and intercultural performance practices. Most recently she has developed the African Women Playwrights Network (AWPN). Her next collaborative project with Lliane Loots of Flatfoot Dance Company, will trace the relationship between disability dance and citizenship with specific companies in various Africa countries. Congratulations Yvette from colleagues, students and alumni!

Warwick Sutton Scholars is a two-year programme for Year 8 and 9 students from under-represented backgrounds in higher education across the West Midlands. Coordinated by Warwick's Widening Participation and Outreach team, the aim of the programme is to inspire students to consider university as an option for the future.
The Year 9 programme is run in collaboration with the GSD Department. Due to the pandemic, this year the programme was run entirely online, with more (shorter) events. The participants worked in groups on a research project titled 'Every Plate Tells a Story', aimed at addressing a problem linked to food and sustainable development. They established a research question, conducted primary research (surveys), and designed an intervention aimed at tackling the problem.
Our Liberal Arts third- and fourth- year finalists were awarded their degrees on Monday 12 July 2021. The past two years have been particularly challenging and we are so proud of everyone who has graduated this year.
