Research Description:

Kate's PhD research aims to define archaeology’s place in documentary and documentary’s place in archaeology, by profiling, problematizing, and reframing how archaeologists understand the practice of documentary filmmaking particularly within a UK context. This research project adopts a mixed-methods strategy including a survey of UK-based archaeologists profiling their experiences of archaeology documentaries, a historical study charting archaeology’s treatment in non-fiction filmmaking from the 1890s to the 2010s, and a practice-led autoethnographic study of the making of an archaeology documentary, as seen from the filmmaker’s perspective.

Kate's other research interests include the history of archaeology, archaeological theory, ethics, digital humanities, film history, museum studies, media studies, public archaeology, Aboriginal archaeology, and repatriation.

Research project

'Off the Record: Archaeology and Documentary Filmmaking'

Kate's research is kindly funded by the University of Southampton Vice Chancellors' Award and the Brumfit-Mitchell Post-Graduate Award.
