Dr. Paul Cuff features on new BFI Napoleon Blu-ray/DVD

The British Film Institute has released a momentus new restoration of Abel Gance's masterpiece Napoleon (1927) on Blu-ray/DVD, and Department Associate Fellow Dr. Paul Cuff, who is a world-leading expert on the film, features heavily in the extras: including an essay on the film, an interview with composer Carl Davis, and a full-length audio commentary (which at 332 minutes, we believe may be a record for a single film).

Find out more about the release here: http://shop.bfi.org.uk/napoleon-blu-ray.html#.WGPX7FPyjBW

Dr Anna Upchurch

We are saddened and shocked to report that on 23rd November 2016 Dr Anna Upchurch passed away, following a short illness. Anna was a Teaching Fellow in the Centre through 2008/2009, teaching on the MA in International Design and Communication Management, before moving to Leeds where she continued to work until shortly before her death. In 2008 she completed her PhD in the Centre, a study of the intellectual origins of the Arts Council; the book resulting from that research, The Origin of the Arts Council Movement was published in the same week as her death. Anna continued to be a friend of the Centre, working with colleagues on research projects, editing a book series for Palgrave Macmillan with her former colleague and friend Dr Ele Belfiore, and participating in the International Conference on Cultural Policy Research.

Anna was an imaginative and empathetic historian of cultural policy, a gifted teacher and a warm, kind-hearted colleague who brought the best out of everybody she worked with. It is a tragedy that her life and career should be cut short. Those of us who knew her will remember her with deep affection, for her generous, open spirit, the interest and care she showed towards her students, and the warmth and kindness she both embodied and inspired. Anna will be greatly missed by her friends and colleagues at Warwick, as well as by the many students, colleagues and friends who were lucky enough to meet her and work with her, at University of Leeds, at Duke University and around the world. If any former students would like to get in touch to share their memories of Anna, we would be happy to pass these on to her family.
