Research interests : How can film be used as a form of commemoration in the 21st century? Supervised by Dr Libby Saxton and Dr Jeremy Hicks

I am a second year film studies PhD candidate researching Holocaust cinema, affect and memory from a phenomenological perspective. I am particularly interested in screen experiences with Holocaust memory that lie outside the Hollywood-esque mainstream style of filmmaking. My research interests include: Holocaust animation; the use of film in Holocaust education; audio-visual experiences in museum spaces; the phenomenology and manipulation of archive material; affect and confrontations of trauma on screen. I recently set up an interdisciplinary research group 'The Holocaust, contemporary genocide, popular culture and digital technologies', for more information please visit:
