Professor Doris Ruth Eikhof

  • Professor of Cultural Economy & Policy (Theatre, Film & Television Studies)

Biography

I am a critical creative economy scholar who specialises in diversity and inclusion in cultural work. My recent projects on the screen industries – film, TV, video games, animation – look to identify and remove structural barriers to inclusion. I am particularly interested in the things we do every day, consciously or unconsciously, that enable or close off opportunity for others.  

As AHRC Leadership Fellow I currently lead the project Everyday Diversity in the UK Screen Sectors (with BFI and Creative Diversity Network), and I work on CDN’s Doubling Disability initiative and BAFTA’s British Academy Film Awards Review. My previous research in the UK creative economy includes the BFI’s Workforce Diversity Evidence Review (2018), One by one: building the digital literacies of UK museums (AHRC), the Digital R&D Fund for Arts and Culture in Scotland (AHRC, Nesta & Creative Scotland), as well as projects with Creative Scotland and various arts organisations.

 Before joining the University of Glasgow I worked at the Universities of Leicester, Stirling and Hamburg. From 2016-2020, I was Deputy Director of the CAMEo Research Institute for Cultural and Media Economies at the University of Leicester.
