From Friday LSM will become Lincoln School of Film & Media. LSFM will bring together Media Production, Audio Production and Film & TV with Animation and Contemporary Lens Media.
The School’s social media platforms will remain at the links you usually use like this blog, our alumni twitter and school twitter feeds. (We will be adding ‘film’ to our sites to reflect the new name, but rest assured it will still be us!)
The University of Lincoln announced ‘as of 1st August 2014 there will be an exciting new alignment of academic schools in the College of Arts. It will provide an environment which engenders interdisciplinary research and innovative teaching and will enhance the student experience.’

Deputy Vice Chancellor, Professor Ieuan Owen: “This is an exciting time for the College of Arts, presenting the opportunity for the College to grow its reputation for excellent teaching and research and to challenge the power of specialist arts institutions. Under the leadership of Professor Matthew Cragoe, who will join the University on 1 August, the University Senior Management Team is confident that the structural changes will provide College of Arts’ staff and students with the opportunity to collaborate in new ways, build on existing academic research and share good teaching practice.”
