Mathilde Bertrand

Mathilde Bertrand works as a teaching and research assistant (ATER) at the English Studies Department of the University of Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense. In 2013 she defended her doctoral dissertation entitled “Between artistic institutionalisation and the invention of a politically radical independent photography: a study of practices, discourses and structures around photography in England from the late fifties to the late eighties”. She worked under the joint supervision of Liliane Louvel (Université de Poitiers) and Cornelius Crowley (Université Paris Ouest). This research links the emergence of a politically radical independent photography in postwar England with contemporary debates on culture, politics and representation. Her research focuses on the interface between artistic and political practices in late 20th and early 21st century Britain, and on the history of British independent photography, with particular attention paid to practices such as “community photography”.
