Robert Boucaut

ECR & Tutor, Media Department, University of Adelaide

I have worked as a tutor across a range of Bachelor of Media courses at the University of Adelaide since 2015, where I also completed my double degree Bachelor of Media and Arts, and my Honours in Media. In 2023 I completed my PhD, where I looked at the cycles of influences between awards shows, filmmaking industries, and their audiences. My thesis is titled is 'Oscar Bait: Exploring Links Between an Academy Awards Institutional Persona and Perceptions of Oscar-Worthiness'.
