George Hoyningen-Huene's use of Neutrals" (published in [in]Transition: Journal of Videographic Film and Moving Image Studies, 10.2, 2023). Archival research for this project was supported by the British Academy / Leverhulme small grant scheme.

Julie's essay was also nominated for the Department's Anita Loos award for the most outstanding undergraduate essay in film studies.

The awards will be announced at the BAFTSS annual conference in April.
