Dr Anamarija Horvat


Department: Arts

I am a lecturer and researcher in media, gender and queer studies. My monograph Screening Queer Memory: LGBTQ Pasts in Contemporary Film and Television is the first academic book to examine how LGBTQ memory is shaped through film and television, thus representing a highly-significant contribution to the intersecting fields of media, memory and queer studies. I have also published a number of works on subjects including intersectionality, the history of queer representation, transgender memory, and LGBTQ migration in contemporary television.

Prior to joining the Department of Arts, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Edinburgh’s Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (2019-2020), followed by a teaching fellowship at the University of Nottingham (2021-2022) and a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Murcia (2022). I attained my PhD in Media Studies at Northumbria University in 2019, and also hold an MA in English Language and Literature and an MA in Philosophy, both from the University of Zagreb.

I have been awarded numerous grants in the field of media studies, including postdoctoral fellowship grants from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (Primary Investigator), the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (Primary Investigator), as well as a fully-funded doctoral grant from Northumbria University, and other grants from institutions such as the Edinburgh Futures Institute, GenderED, and the Contemporary Women’s Writing Association. I have also organised numerous academic and outreach events, including three international academic conferences, an Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded symposium, a film series and individual film screenings. I am co-chair of the European Network for Cinema and Media Studies (NECS) Queer and Feminist Workgroup.
