Dr Lisa Shaw has 50 videos sitting in her room to watch. Shes not a TV addict though its part of her research into how national identity in Brazil has been portrayed through film over the century.
Cinema research is a strong field in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese and Dr Shaw is currently writing a book Cinema and Society in Brazil, 1930 - 1990 with colleague Dr Stephanie Dennison. Dr Shaw is one of 11 humanities researchers to receive a study leave award from the University and it will enable her to travel to Brazil and the USA to make vital links with other academics researching in the same field. Its great for my research and it will boost the Departments research strength as well, she said.
Further applications for study leave awards can be made to Lorraine Gaughan, email email@example.com, by May 15.
