Message from the Chair of The British Association for Film, Television and Screen Studies (BAFTSS)
"This message is for doctoral students working in Film, Television and Screen Studies (FTSS). BAFTSS is keen to support you in your work. We would like to alert you to two ways in which we can do this, and are asking you for your feedback.
1. We are working up a doctoral training event in FTSS for October 2015, and wish to gauge interest. We are currently thinking of a ‘northern’ and a ‘southern/London’ event and would like to know first whether this might be of interest to you, and second what you might like to see us provide as part of this training event. The items we are currently thinking of are as follows: a brief history of screen theories; presentations by PGRs of their projects; individual consultations with BAFTSS colleagues relating to the projects; academic career advice. We believe that this kind of event would complement those organized by your Doctoral Training Partnership provider, as well as giving you useful networking opportunities. Please let us know if you are interested.
2. We have a PGR network, and we have been talking to MeCCSA (, who are keen to work with us in ensuring that we give maximum visibility and support to FTSS PGRs, whichever organization you belong to (you may belong to both of course). We would like to list PGR projects in FTSS on the BAFTSS website with brief abstracts. If you would like to be listed, we would be very grateful if you could send the following information: your name, university affiliation and DTP affiliation, email address, abstract of the project, and link to a website if appropriate.
Please respond direct to me as Chair of BAFTSS by the end of February 2015 with the subject line 'BAFTSS DTP Provision (your name)'."

Call for Proposals
  • To mark its tenth anniversary in 2015, the AHRC is looking to extend its partnership with Cheltenham Festivals by inviting applications from researchers to present their research at one of a series of four engaging public events at the Times Cheltenham Science Festival and the Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival in 2015. One event will run at the Science Festival, and three at the Literature Festival.

    Up to twenty successful applicants will have a chance to develop their event ideas with experienced Cheltenham Festival producers and members of the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement team at a dedicated workshop. Of these, up to four will have the chance to hold their event at one of the Festivals. The call is open to researchers at any stage in their career, but we’re interested in getting as many proposals as possible from postgrads and ECRs.
    To find out more information and details on how to apply, please visit the AHRC website.

    Deadline: Monday 9 February
