RESEARCH CALL OUT (January 2021)

Looking for Czech and Slovak interview participants – Research for a new artist film, or screenplay (depending on Covid restrictions during the PhD project)…
People in the following categories are of interest to this research:
– Women born in 1976
– Citizens active in the dissent of 1989
– Current Czech and Slovak film / TV workers with memories of the communist era
– Translators with memories of the communist era
– Persons connected with the Czech Television Crisis (Dec 2000 – Feb 2001)
– Able to narrate in a personal capacity
The research is particularly centred on gaining a picture of women’s historical perspectives intersecting with media histories and adolescence at the time of the revolution, including everyday experience and biographical events.
The interviews will be tailored where possible to different interviewees. Translator support optional*.
Audio-recorded interviews conducted through online or in-person interviews. GDPR compliant study and full anonymity options have been considered.
The doctoral project (Techne AHRC) is in collaboration with the British Film Institute. Based on this research, the resulting fiction writing is intended to eventually ‘speak to’ items in the BFI archives through this character development activity.
I would be very happy to hear from interested parties and have further information documents (in English) which can be exchanged over email.
*Also seeking translator and a transcriber for any Czech or Slovak language interviews (paid).
please contact for further information.
