Alice Thorpe

Alice Thorpe is a third-year, AHRC-funded PhD student in the Faculty of English. Her research is focused on classical Hollywood cinema, and draws upon architectural theory in investigating the ways in which space functions in the built sets of the studio era as a bearer of narrative meaning across different genre narratives. Her broader research interests are primarily in twentieth-century British and American film and literature, and she completed a BA in English & Related Literature at the University of York before coming to Cambridge in 2013 to study for the MPhil in Screen Media & Cultures, writing her MPhil thesis on the work of Nicholas Ray.
