Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The University of Ulster reports today that Dr Sarah Edge of the Centre for Media Research in the School of Media, Film and Journalism at the Coleraine Campus has been appointed Professor of Photography and Cultural Studies.
Professor Edge’s appointment recognises her innovative work across a number of areas. She is an acknowledged pedagogic expert on the delivery of media practice in an academic context.
She has published extensively in the area of early Victorian photography and has enjoyed a successful career as a feminist photographer. The appointment also recognises her leadership and management role within the University as demonstrated by her roles as Head of School for Media, Film and Journalism and Director of NI Skillset Media Academy, the innovative industry education partnership. Originally from Farnborough in Hampshire, when Professor Edge joined Ulster’s lecturing staff in 1991, she already had a well established career as a feminist photographer, curator and writer.
She is currently working on a book that will examine the earliest known photographic archive of working class women that was complied by Arthur J Munby in the 1860s.
