    Coursework for the MLitt in Film and Television Studies has focused on a survey of industry practices and trends both internationally and multinationally, along with particular emphasis on Scottish film and television production. My particular academic interests include experimental arts and new media, music videos, documentary cinema, and spectatorship studies. For my dissertation, I am applying ethnographic methodologies to understand the relationship between personal experience and observational documentary spectatorship. Expected completion of studies in September 2021

    Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology (Honours) with Cinema and Media StudiesHamilton College
     - Clinton, NY 13323, USA
    Equivalent of a UK 2:1 Honours with departmental distinction in anthropology and a minor in cinema and media studies. My coursework in anthropology spanned sociocultural and sociolinguistic studies culminating in a dissertation that employed digital ethnographic methods to examine the relationship between masculinity, politics, and image sharing on social media. With my minor in cinema and media studies, I gained a comprehensive understanding of film history as well as cross-medium and interdisciplinary trends throughout modern and contemporary art, with particular emphasis on documentary and avant-garde practices. Beyond cinema, I took courses in photography history and practice, gaining experience in both digital and analogue workflows, in addition to 35mm, 120mm, and 4x5 film processing and scanning.
