Cinema Expert New Head Of Media

News Image
Dr Sarah Barrow has become the new Head of the University of Lincoln's successful School of Media.
She succeeds Professor David Sleight who became the University's Dean of Media, Humanities and Technology.
Previously at Anglia Ruskin University, Dr Barrow developed the integration of film studies and film production – a blend of theory and practice, alongside industry experience, that is also the predominant model at Lincoln.
She is keen to promote opportunities for students to work on projects outside the curriculum and has already started to develop a number of initiatives with Lincolnshire business, community and media organisations.
Sarah was one of the founding members of the Cambridgeshire Film Consortium, an internationally-recognised initiative that provides a range of formal and informal education opportunities for all those interested in the production, reception and enjoyment of cinema.
From 1997 until 2003, she was also co-director of Great Little Films which produced numerous short films funded by local authorities and arts organisations.
Commenting on her appointment Sarah said: "I'm delighted to have joined the School of Media at such an exciting time. Our academic programmes are going from strength to strength and our growing reputation and the quality of our students is evident in their recent success at the Royal Television Society National Student Awards."
Before joining Anglia Ruskin, Dr Barrow managed the education programme of the Cambridge Arts Cinema and Cambridge Film Festival (which included collaborations with European funding programmes and festivals) and this experience fed her fascination with the industrial aspects of cinema, particularly distribution and exhibition.
A specialist in Peruvian cinema, Sarah's research interests lie within the area of national cinema and its relationship with violence, cultural identity, economics and policy.
