Awards success for PhD student

18 October 2019

Shruti Narayanswamy, a final year PhD student in the Department of Film Studies, has received a special commendation from the awards committee for the 2019 Domitor Student Essay Competition. Shruti was recognised for her essay, 'Women’s Work in ‘Sanitising’ Cinema in 1920s Bombay,'  which was praised by the committee for offering “a genuine contribution to the field of early cinema history.”

It is only the second time since these prestigious awards began more than a decade ago that a student from a UK institution has been recognised.
