Congratulations to Annie Fee, who was selected for a postdoctoral fellowship from the British Academy. She will be at the University College London for her three year postdoc.
Annie Fee's project, "A Counter-Cartography of 1920s Paris Film Culture," aims to produce a digital map of inter-war Paris cinema culture. She integrates autobiographical accounts, news stories, fan letters, and details of political meetings held in cinemas to create the first social map of cinemas in 1920s Paris. Each cinema location will be an interactive gateway to the cinema experience of a specific historical community, enabling users to appreciate the experiential richness of cinema-going in the 1920s.
