Dr Annie Fee

British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow

Annie Fee is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of History (2015-2018). She has a PhD in Comparative Literature, Cinema and Media Studies from The University of Washington, an MA in Comparative Literature from The University of Geneva and an MA in Cinema History from The University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne. In 2015 she was awarded the Dean's Graduate Medal in the Humanities from the University of Washington, College of Arts and Sciences. Her research in Paris has been funded by an Entente Cordiale Scholarship, a research associate position at the Cinémathèque Française, and a Chester A. Fritz Scholarship. Her debut article, which appeared in in Early Popular Visual Culture, was highly commended in the 2014 Annette Kuhn (Screen) Essay Award Competition. At UCL she will be developing an interactive historical map of 1920s Parisian cinema culture. Her project will explore alternative data such as autobiographical accounts, news stories, fan letters, and details of political meetings held in cinemas to allow users to experience the richness of cinema-going in 1920s Paris. A previous version of this digital project received generous funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Simpson Center for the Humanities at the University of Washington. She has a forthcoming chapter in The Blackwell Companion to D.W. Griffith and she is working on a book manuscript dealing with the class and gender politics at play in the emergence of cinephilia in inter-war France.
