Dr Jacqueline Maingard

Biography

I joined the University of Bristol in 1998, having taught film and television at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits), Johannesburg for ten years prior to that. I am a graduate of both the Arts and the Social Sciences. I completed a Bachelor of Social Science and qualified as a social worker at the University of Natal, Durban in 1973. I subsequently graduated with a Social Science Honours degree. This was followed by a shift into film studies, first by completing a BA in Dramatic Art at Wits University, then completing an MA by research in 1988 with a dissertation on Community Film in South Africa as a Mode of Emergent Cultural Production. I graduated with a PhD from Wits University in 1998 with my thesis on Strategies of Representation in Anti-apartheid Documentary Film and Video from 1976 to 1995.  I have a wide range of work experience, primarily in education, especially HIgher Education in South Africa and the UK, but also in community-based, Non-Governmental and anti-apartheid organisations in South Africa.
