Richard Langley

Colleges, School and Institutes


Richard Langley did his first degree, in American and Canadian Studies, and both his MPhil and PhD at University of Birmingham, undertaking the latter part-time so that he could pursue other interesting career opportunities.

Consequently, Richard has had a broad-based work experience across the culture sector, in arts centres, museums, television development and video production. As well as his own experiments in the development of an audio-visual academia, Richard has worked in a range of freelance roles (camera, edit, production) and across a range of genres (sports, comedy, drama, current affairs).

Research interests

I am in the early stages of developing a series of short-films, ’23 Short Stories About the Noösphere’, a long-term investigative project for a YouTube channel.

Willingness to take PhD students


PhD projects

I am currently supervising several audio-visual dissertations of students on the Film and Television MA.

I am interested in working with students interested in Film production; documentary; digital media; audio-visual academia; social action filmmaking.
