Event description
Join us for the final IPUP seminar of the summer term with York PhD student Rosy Alexander-Jones

About this event

Rosy Alexander-Jones, a PhD student with the Department of Theatre, Film, TV and Interactive Media will speak to us about her research on heritage film and historic houses.

When you watch a heritage film, period drama or costume drama you expect to see a stately home. It has become a recognisable feature of this grouping of films – but these buildings were never designed to be filmed. My research looks at how filming first began in these spaces, what filming involves and what the lasting effects are. Having talked to many people at the National Trust, English Heritage and private houses I provide an engaging and enthralling look at what it means to be a heritage filming location, and how it is becoming essential for keeping the roofs on their ancient buildings.

Rosy will speak for around 45 minutes, followed by a Q&A session. All are welcome.

A Zoom link will be sent to attendees by 3pm on the day of the seminar.
