Research projects

Members of the department have engaged in an array of externally-funded projects dealing with celebrity, modernism, multi-platforming public service television, diasporic cinema, national cinemas and individual film directors.

Current activities include:


  • TV archive project EUScreenXL 
  • ADAPT : The Adoption of New Technological Arrays in the Production of Broadcast Television – an ambitious research project funded by the European Research Council
  • The History of Forgotten Television Drama , a three-year project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council
  • The Economic and Social Research Council is also supporting a series of seminars on unaccompanied children seeking asylum inspired by Sue Clayton’s Hamedullah.
  • Posthumanities Research Network, a project supported by Swedish Research Council for Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Picturing the Social: Transforming Our Understanding of Images in Social Media and Big Data Research- a rigorous research project supported by the Economic and Social Council

Recent activities include:

  • Migrant and Diasporic Cinema in Contemporary Europe , an international Research Network funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council as part of the Diasporas, Migration & Identities strategic programme. The project examined how migrant and diasporic filmmakers have revitalised European cinema by introducing non-Western traditions and new genre conventions. 
  • The Diasporic Family in Cinema investigates the representation of ethnic minority families with a migratory background in contemporary European cinema. The project was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Professor Daniela Berghahn was interviewed by Facultimedia.com about her most recent book Far-Flung Families in Film (Edinburgh UP 2013).
