Our research in the visual and performing arts, and cinema is widespread and excitingly diverse. We work on painting and photography, and on political cartoons.
In the performing arts, we are engaged with music and theatre.
In cinema, our work focuses on individual directors and auteurs, questions of genre, the industry of cinema and the role of translation and subtitling in film. Our research covers these arts across Europe, and in Africa and the Americas.
Current visual culture projects include art theory in seventeenth-century Iberia, German aesthetic theory, visual poetry and the art novel in France, visual art in nation-building in contemporary Spain, Portugal and Lusophone Africa, the history and theory of photography, photography and politics/literary culture in Weimar Germany, France and Russia, political cartoons on the Falklands/Malvinas conflict, visual imagery in political and media discourse in the former Yugoslavia.
