About

At a time when society is increasingly shaped by the media we consume and create, our research is exploring how film and other forms of screen media shape people's attitudes and beliefs, and how it informs their daily lives.

Overview

If you're ready to take your expertise in Film and Media into a postgraduate research qualification, look no further than Portsmouth.

Our research staff have specialisms in fandom and popular culture, history and theory of animation, Hollywood film, British film, digital content, horror, transmedia storytelling, adaptation, comics and film, Latin American film, transnational cinemas, gender and film, women's filmmaking, queer theory and film, and film and migration.

When you study for a postgraduate research degree with us, you'll be following in the footsteps of previous research students who've presented their work at international conferences, published their outputs in renowned journals, and worked at academic and commercial archives, including the British Film Institute (BFI), the National Archives, The Bill Douglas Centre, the BBC Written Archives and at Channel 4.

Our Doctoral graduates have gone on to careers across the cultural industries, while others have been appointed as post-doctoral researchers on projects funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), and established successful academic careers across the globe.
