Dr Azadeh Emadi

  • Lecturer in Screen Production (Theatre, Film & Television Studies)

Research interests

As a researcher and a video maker, Azadeh Emadi is deeply invested in interdisciplinary and intercultural approaches that cross over diverse cultural forms of knowledge and digital media arts. She applies these approaches to address socio-cultural matters related to media production and to the ways in which digital moving images convey and construct meaning. She does so through integrating theoretical investigation with media production (e.g., experimental video and film, video installation). The underlying focus of her research is to investigate new ways of seeing by applying historical Persian concepts and arts within contemporary Western schools of thought and moving image. Notions such as virtual reality, time and motion, perception and representation, digital im/materiality in the post digital era, as well as digital media and its latent potentialities in relation to real life events and current socio-cultural issues, are the current foci of her research and video practice.

She is also interested to develop new pedagogies by integrating different cultural knowledge forms, and to develop curricula that bring together academic, creative practice and community engagement. In the same way that she has been supported to explore her own cultural background as a basis for developing innovative research, she anticipates encouraging research and creative students to realise their own potential through investigating global, local and personal perspectives and cultures.
