Researchers gain insight into world of TV

Six young academics from across the UK will be taking part in a “TV PhD”, a new collaboration between the The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Edinburgh International Television Festival (ETF) to allow doctoral students to attend the Festival in August 2018.

This new training and mentoring programme is intended to help them get work in – or with – the television industry.

Dr Paul Meller, Strategic Lead for the Creative Arts and Digital Humanities at the AHRC says: “This is a fantastic opportunity for these six AHRC-funded students who will participate in one of the biggest and most prestigious media events in the UK.”

Those taking up their places on the scheme this year are drawn from academic institutions across the UK. They are: Ayesha Taylor-Camara, University of Nottingham; Anna McKay, University of Leicester; Fiona Clapperton, University of Sheffield; Rob Eagle, University of the West of England; Christina Brennan, University of Manchester; Juliet Brown, University College London.
