Our recent doctoral graduates have worked on innovative projects and produced groundbreaking research. We have enabled them to present their work at international conferences, to publish their findings in scholarly journals during their period of study, and to build important academic and industry connections via our established UK networks. Many of our PhD students have had the opportunity to work at academic and commercial archives, including the BFI, the National Archives, The Bill Douglas Centre, the BBC Written Archives and at Channel 4. We have an excellent record in supporting oral history research and several of our postgraduates have conducted original interviews as part of their research.We have enabled our doctoral graduates to go on to publish their research in monographs and edited collections, and they have gained employment in a range of sectors: some work in the Cultural Industries (eg for Creative Skillset); others have been appointed as post-doctoral researchers on AHRC-funded projects; and a number have established successful academic careers both in the UK (eg at Bournemouth and Queens University Belfast) and internationally (eg Hiroshima and Trondheim).In Drama and Performance, and Creative Writing and Digital Storytelling, our doctoral students (including opera directors and novelists) have specialised in practice-based research studies which have been innovative in their fields.
