UCL & Film Studies
UCL was the first university in England to open up entry to people of all social beliefs and backgrounds. It is currently ranked in the top ten of the world’s universities. UCL also pioneered Film Studies at university level in the U.K., and today houses a thriving community of scholars interested in all aspects of the past and present of cinema culture.
UCL is located in the centre of London, a short walk away from a range of resources for the study of cinema that includes the British Film Institute and the British Library. UCL has considerable library resources, both in the main campus library and also in the central University of London library at Senate House. We are also a short walk away from both West End cinemas, and a range of art cinemas. London, and UCL as London’s global university, is a remarkable place to study the diverse cultures of cinema.
UCL houses a regular research seminar, and has hosted seminars by, amongst others:
- Constance Balides - Tulane University
- Mark Betz - King’s College, London
- Jon Burrows - Warwick University
- Kay Dickinson - Goldsmiths College, University of London
- Thomas Elsaesser - Amsterdam
- David Forgacs - NYU
- Charlie Keil - Toronto
- Peter Kramer - UEA
