New Centre for World Cinemas and Digital Cultures at University of Leeds

CWCDC Profile ImageOn 1 August 2015 the Centre for World Cinemas, based in the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies at the University of Leeds, officially became the Centre for World Cinemas and Digital Cultures (CWCDC).

The change in name marks both a logical development of the Centre’s interests given the increasingly digital nature of film production and distribution around the world, and an exciting opportunity to build on other research strengths in the School in the field of digital cultures. The new Centre is now able to fully embrace research on online cultural production, video gaming, mobile phone apps, and the more creative side of digital activism – artivism – , to name just a few examples, as they occur in different sociocultural contexts around the globe. The new Centre is currently being directed by DLAC Network’s Thea Pitman.

The CWCDC will be holding a launch event on the afternoon of 4 November 2015, as well as its ongoing seminar series, this year dedicated to the topic of cosmopolitanism and cultural citizenship. More information about all these events will be released shortly.

To find out more about the Centre’s activities, see the website and the Facebook page.
