First Mark Brownrigg Memorial Prize Awarded at the University of Stirling

Staff on the Film MLitt at the University of Stirling are delighted to congratulate Elaine Dinsmore whose final Creative Project was awarded the first annual Mark Brownrigg Memorial Prize in October, generously sponsored by Intellect Publishing. This prize is given in memory of an inspiring colleague, scholar and lecturer and was awarded to Elaine in recognition of the excellence of her Creative Project entitled:  'Horror: Genre and Narrative'.

The project is composed of a reflective essay and three screenplays entitled 'Family', 'Monster Movie Marathon', and 'Horror 101'. The screenplays are designed to illustrate Todorov's theory of the fantastic, by engaging alternatively with features of the Marvelous, the Uncanny, and the Fantastic.

Students on the undergraduate programme in Global Cinema and Culture will also have the opportunity to compete for the first Mark Brownrigg Undergraduate Essay Prize, also generously sponsored by Intellect, which will be awarded at the end of the current academic year.
