Linda Ruth Williams, Visiting Professor of Film Studies

It is with pleasure that we announce that Linda Ruth Williams will be at the Centre for Film and Screen during the Lent term (2019). She is with us thanks to a visiting fellowship at Corpus Christi College. She will be giving a talk in the Film and Screen Studies Research Seminar series on 6 March. 

Linda Ruth Williams is Professor of Film at Exeter University, and is currently Visiting Fellow at Corpus Christi College. Whilst at Cambridge Linda Ruth Williams will be developing a monograph on women writer-directors in twenty-first century British cinema, which deploys original interviews with key filmmakers, and analyses oral history as process and method in film studies. This work stems from her research as co-investigator of the major 4-year AHRC-funded research project on contemporary women filmmakers, Calling the Shots: women and contemporary film culture in the UK, 2000-2015.
