Project Description

A project with Dr Clodagh Brook will investigate the place of religion in European Cinema from the 1960s. The PhD research may focus on portrayals and constructions of Catholicism, Islam and Judaism or other faiths and beliefs in European cinema (Italian, French, German and Spanish, particularly). The politics of religious identity, religious dissent, satire, and hagiographies are all suitable areas of research under this theme, as is archival research on production and distribution of both religious and anti-religious cinema and TV.
