The University of Warwick’s Department of Film and Television Studies, in collaboration with the Centre for Cultural Policy studies, is opening a new Centre for Television History, Heritage and Memory Research on Wednesday 28th October 2015.
This newly formed centre will focus on television history, heritage and memory and the development of research, learning and training in collaboration with industry.
The establishment of the centre will enable the department to build upon its longstanding reputation for excellence in the field of historical television studies, and, over the coming years, the Centre plans to develop existing connections with television production companies and archives in order to deliver innovative, world-class postgraduate education and training.
The new Centre for Television History, Heritage and Memory Research will develop bids for external funding for large scale and individual research projects, postdoctoral fellowships and collaborative doctoral training awards. There will be a regular programme of events which will include Visiting Scholars and other guest speakers, conferences, symposia and knowledge transfer events which will be public and industry-facing in addition to their more traditional address to an academic audience.
Dr Rachel Moseley, Director of the Centre for Television History, Heritage and Memory Research said, “I’m delighted to announce the opening of the new Centre for Television History, Heritage and Memory Research. The centre will provide fantastic opportunities to further our work on the history of television and the development of our research, learning and training in collaboration with industry.”
The team are keen to develop cross-disciplinary work on questions of television history, heritage and memory and to work with other organisations with a stake in our television heritage. So, whether you are scholar working in Television Studies or an adjacent field, or work for organisation that might wish to collaborate with the Centre and want to hear more about the plans for the Centre, please contact the Director, Dr Rachel Moseley:
