Professor Tony Dowmunt

Tony Dowmunt co-ordinates the AVPhD practice-based doctoral research programme in the Department (AVPhDs application form).

He was a Fellow in the Creative and Performing Arts, funded by the AHRC, from 2003-6, doing a project investigating autobiographical documentary and the video diary form, in both theory and practice, which he then converted into a practice-based PhD awarded in 2010. He was also Convenor of the MA Screen Documentary in the Department from 1995-2015.

As well as teaching, he worked as a television Producer/Director, and as a community media activist. His more recent work involved innovative arts documentaries. His other research interests have included 'alternative/community media' and the growing field of practice research in the moving image. He was a founder member of the steering group of AVPhD, a training organisation for all those involved in audio-visual practice/research doctorates.
