Film Studies bling-bling

"Film Studies bling-bling" is about hidden and well-known treasures, big and small diamonds from Film Studies. In each episode, we have a "Bling of the month"; scholars from Film Studies who are interviewed about their research. In the news section, you hear from current research projects or book publications, or whatever struck my way strolling around in the Film Studie's universe. And at the end of each episode comes the "Dear Diary" chapter. Here I give an insight into my research work in my current project "The cinematic face of cities" and talk about other topics that concern me as a PostDoc.
