Staff Profile:Alison Butler

Name:
Ms Alison Butler
Job Title:
Associate Professor
Responsibilities:
  • Examinations Officer
  • Library Representative
  • Module Convenor MA Film Analysis
  • Module Convenor Storytelling in Film
Areas of Interest:

My research interests are in two fields: women's cinema and artists' film and video. My research on women's cinema is concerned with the relationships between feminist theory and the practices and aesthetics of women filmmakers, conceptualized as a 'minor cinema' in the Deleuzian sense of the term, as an inflection of dominant forms. My interests in artists' film and video include the aesthetics of multi-screen installation, the meanings and functions of projected public art and ways of thinking about cinematic time and space, especially when these are transposed into non-theatrical locations. I am an editor of the journal Screen.

Postgraduate Supervision:

I welcome enquiries from prospective postgraduate students on any topic relating to alternative and artists' film, theories of cinematic time and space, and women's cinema. Current and recent supervisions include the films of Greek director Olga Malea and a practice as research exploration of oneiric cinema.
