VisCult’s Catherine Grant, in collaboration with the feminist film distributors Cinenova, has been successful in acquiring CHASE funding for a new PhD studentship to be run at Goldsmiths, now open for applications.
The project, “Circling Cinenova: A history of an evolving feminist arts organisation”, will investigate an important history of collaborative feminist organising in the arts. Tracing the early history of the organisation Cinenova alongside its current activities, this project will explore the resonances in its evolution for the present day. The partnership with Cinenova will provide access to their archives and the ethos of this feminist organisation that curates, conserves and distributes women’s film and video.
Supervised by Dr Catherine Grant, in the Art Department at Goldsmiths, University of London and Charlotte Procter from the Cinenova working group, this PhD would be particularly suited to candidates with a background in art history, film studies and/or feminism.
