PhD Researcher, Nottingham Trent University

Siân Liddle is currently a 4rd year PhD student at Nottingham Trent University. Her research focuses on World War One facial injury and how attitudes towards disfigurement within popular culture have affected its lack of representation within British film culture. Siân's thesis consists of an archival-critical-creative approach, using archival material to inform a two-hour screenplay commemorating the disfigured servicemen of WWI.

Her research interests include WWI facial injury and reconstruction, and the representation of physical and psychological trauma in film.

She is funded by an NTU Vice-Chancellor’s PhD Scholarship.
