Abstract

Between 2009 and 2010 I was employed as a postdoctoral researcher on the AHRC-funded project, Colonial Film: Moving Images of the British Empire. The primary outcome of this project was a database detailing the colonial films held by BFI, the Imperial War Museum and the British Empire and Commonwealth Museum. Many of these films are not widely known, and the project provided the first thorough documentation of these materials. I was employed to write 95 1,000-word essays about selected films from this database. These essays were broken down into context and analysis of the films and were reviewed by archivists at the relevant institutions, as well as by the project’s co-directors, Colin MacCabe (Pittsburgh) and Lee Grieveson (UCL).
