Cinema Studies at Stockholm University examines the history, theories, aesthetics and features from early films to today's multimedial landscape. We are one of Europe's largest disciplines in Cinema Studies, and one of the leading research areas in the humanities at Stockholm University. We are in the Film House at Gärdet, a unique building that was built as a tribute to the film and today is a gathering place for all kinds of film activities. Moving image media – movies, television and digital images – play an ever increasing role in an increasingly globalized world.
The subject of Cinema Studies provides critical tools for analyzing moving images on a human-historical and cultural theoretical basis both in historical and contemporary perspectives. The discipline is interdisciplinary, intermediary and pluralistic in both historiographical and theoretical terms.
