Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
De Montfort University, Leicester, has appointed Dr Elizabeth Edwards as Research Professor in Photographic History. She joins the De Montort team from her previous role as Senior Research Fellow at University of the Arts, London, on 1 June 2011. Her research interests are noted here: http://www.lcc.arts.ac.uk/Elizabeth_Edwards_research.htm.
The post was advertised in November last year and was previously noted on BPH http://britishphotohistory.ning.com/profiles/blogs/job-research-pro.... Edwards will offer some support to De Montfort's acclaimed History of Photgraphy and Practice MA course led by Dr Kelley Wilder, but as with her predecessor Roger Taylor who held the Professorship from its inception, Edwards' focus will be on securing research funding, developing the research base and profile of the photographic history department, and she also becomes the first Director of the Photographic History Research Centre based at the university. The PHRC is currently recruiting a PhD student to examine the nature of Kodak research.
The university will be making a formal announcement in due course but as news now appears to be public BPH feels able to note the appointment now.
