Dr Scott Anthony is an Assistant Professor in Public History at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore and an Affiliate Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge.
His scholarly research centres on the public role of artists and intellectuals across the British Empire, the growth of the culture industries, the role of artists and intellectuals in national life, and how the conception of (and experience of) democracy altered over the twentieth century.
In the past, he has worked with the British Film Institute on a series of highly-successful screenings, curatorial projects, and book and DVD releases, including We Live in Two Worlds, volume two of the BFI’s GPO Film Unit collection, which won ‘DVD boxset of the year’ at the 2009 Il Cinema Ritrovato awards at the Bologna Film Festival. In 2014 he worked for The Royal Mail in the UK on the issue of a set of Great British Film stamps.
He has also worked in a freelance capacity on public history projects for organisations such as British Airways and the Science Museum, as well as for many newspapers, magazines and media organisations such as the guardian, The Times and Future Publishing.
