Jane Dawson is a PhD student and filmmaker. Her SWW2-funded PhD project interrogates the role of indigenous creatives in the UK’s natural history film sector.
Jane’s research interests are diverse and her practice-based research often harnesses participatory methodologies. Her most recent works include No California (2021), a co-created documentary exploring regional (coastal) creative exclusion in the UK screen sector, and Mascota (2022), a conceptual short made as part of Dr Miguel Gaggiotti’s Transforming Voices collaborative project, which expounds women’s organisational vulnerability in the Mexico-US borderlands.
Before the PhD, Jane spent 12 years working in journalism, marketing and creative direction with a focus on international audiences and digital formats.
