Information about the funding

A fully funded European Research council PhD Scholarship

The Departments of English, German and Film at King's College London are seeking well-qualified applicants for a fully-funded PhD scholarship attached to the European Research Council project "Beyond Enemy Lines: Literature and Film in the British and American Zones of Occupied Germany, 1945-1949".

In 2013, Dr Lara Feigel from the Department of English won funding of EUR1.7million for a major research project on Anglo-American-German cultural relations in the British and American zones of postwar occupied Germany. Funding is available for a PhD studentship, to be jointly supervised with the Departments of German and Film. The project will be refined in the light of the interests and strengths of the candidates but will be drawn from the following area of research:

Cultural Exchange or Domination by Hollywood? American and German Cinema, 1945-1955

This project will address both US and German film policy and practice in postwar Germany; possible topics include the role of exile practitioners in shaping post-war US-German film relations, the dissemination and reception of US films in the immediate postwar period, the role of American occupiers in shaping German rubble films.
