Mediating Cultural Encounters through European Screens (MeCETES) - Andrew Higson (Principal Investigator) ‌

MeCetes is a 3-year project conducted in partnership with Professor Ib Bondebjerg (University of Copenhagen, Denmark) and Professor Caroline Pauwels (Vrije Universiteit Brussels, Belgium), and funded by Humanities in the European Area (HERA). The project aims to examine which European films and television drama travel well within Europe, how these represent other European cultures, and how audiences engage with such screen fictions. It will involve both a Europe-wide overview and detailed national case studies, for the period 2005-2015.


The Dutch Courtesan

The Dutch Courtesan - Michael Cordner (Principal Investigator) and Ollie Jones (Co-Investigator)

The Dutch Courtesan project is part of Professor Cordner's ongoing Jacobean City Comedy project, which aims to edit and adapt, rehearse, perform and film productions of Jacobean comedy on the modern stage. This part of the project staged John Marston's The Dutch Courtesan on TFTV's Scenic Stage Theatre in 2013. The project website hosts and tracks the ongoing discussion between international scholars, professional creatives and the wider public, and contains a collection of edited scholarly essays, production interviews and blogs, and films of The Dutch Courtesan and A Mad World, My Masters.


The Pararchive Project

Pararchive Project: open access community story-telling and the digital archive - Jenna Ng (Co-Investigator)

Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the aim of the project (Oct 2013 - Mar 2015) is to co-produce a new 'open' digital resource that will allow anyone to search and collect on-line resources and to combine them with their own media (film, photographs and other ephemera) in order to tell their own stories, make new archives, be creative, start new projects and do their own research.
