Dr Lee Grieveson
Lee Grieveson is Reader in Film Studies and Director of the Graduate Programme in Film Studies at University College London. He has taught previously at the University of Exeter, at King’s College, London, and as a Visiting Associate Professor at Harvard University.
Grieveson works on cinema and political economy, and is currently writing a book called The Cinema and the Wealth of Nations that examines the way cinema was utilized by states and corporations to facilitate the establishment of a transnational liberal political economy in the interwar years of the twentieth century. The book has been supported by Fellowships from the Leverhulme Foundation and the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
Grieveson was co-principal investigator, with Colin MacCabe, of a major UK Arts and Humanities Research Council funded project entitled "Colonial Cinema: Moving Images of the British Empire," a project which both aimed to digitally archive British colonial cinema spanning the twentieth- century and to organise scholarly gatherings to investigate these materials.
He is the author of numerous essays on aspects of cinema history, including “Fighting Films: Race, Morality, and the Governing of Cinema” (Cinema Journal, Vol. 38, No. 1, Autumn, 1998), which was awarded the Society for Cinema Studies Katherine Singer Kovacs Essay Award in 1999 for outstanding essay in English language media studies.
Grieveson is on the editorial boards of Cinema Journal, Screen, and the British Film Institute Film Classics series; he is co-editor, with Haidee Wasson, of the Cultural Histories of Cinema book series with the British Film Institute.
