Sarah Kelley HoMER Conference 2019 in Nassau

£705 of £1,000 goal

Raised by 5 people in 3 months
I am a 2nd year Postgraduate Research student in the Film & TV department at the University of Bristol, UK (link to research profile ). I am interested in the ideas about British culture that were represented in the Harry Potter and James Bond film franchises from 2001-2012. My research involves analysing the films' publicity materials and merchandise in order to understand the role that they played in conveying certain ideas to British audiences. My project also explores the value of this approach in the context of film and cinema history. Much of the existing literature I draw on has been produced by active members of the HoMER network: for this reason it was extremely beneficial to attend the 2018 HoMER conference and to be part of the most up to date discussions on approaches to cinema history (link to conference report ). I would like to continue to learn from and be involved in this community of research. As my project progresses, I would like to share my findings and contribute to this field. The 2019 HoMER conference  in Nassau provides an opportunity for me to do this. My proposed paper has been accepted but the location means that I require financial help with travelling and staying there. Currently the cheapest flights are around £600 return (from London) and accommodation is between £240-£320 for the 4 nights I would require. I believe a goal of £1000 would also cover other costs such as local travel and subsistence. I would be extremely grateful for any contributions you might be able to give for this cause, even the smallest amount is a great help. Many thanks in advance.
