Visiting Research Fellow

 

Liz Watkins

Research Fellow in History of Art and Film

Research interests include film theories of sexuality and gesture; theories and philosophies of colour and perception; historiography and the fantastic in narratives of early 1900s scientific expedition films, photography and their public presentation; scientific film and photography of expeditions led by Scott, Mawson, Shackleton and Amundsen and its commercial exhibition;  the social and institutional uses of film, photography and their historical specificities in archives and digital exhibition. Liz's monograph, Film Theories and Philosophies of Colour: The Residual Image (Routledge), formulates an innovative approach to thinking about colour for film theories of perception, sexuality and subjectivity. This book - Film Theories and Philosophies of Colour - analyses the possibilities and converse effects of colour designs that articulate the female protagonist beyond spectacle to theorise contingency and ‘unremarkable colours’ that trace a network of female relationships within the gendered and classed social structures of narrative cinema. Liz founded and convenes the Special Interest Group on Colour and Film with Professor Sarah Street (University of Bristol) for the British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies (BAFTSS). She is a member of the Executive Committee of BAFTSS and the Editorial Board of Open Screens.
