Professor Jeremy Barr specialises in broadcasting and convergent media.
He has had a relationship with Ravensbourne over a significant period of time having taught and managed courses in the field of broadcasting at both undergraduate and postgraduate level and developed those studies into a nationally perceived centre of excellence.
As subject leader, he developed the first two-year honours degree as an accelerated course of academic study in the UK in the field of emergent media.
He continues to play a leading role in the evolution of Ravensbourne’s portfolio of postgraduate courses and currently leads on the postgraduate research process unit that nurtures a diversity of creative research in the subject pathways.
Jeremy Barr has worked in broadcasting in the BBC and ITV in the UK, narrowcasting in Canada and consultancies including DR TV. He has also enjoyed the opportunities enabled by project management and the array of challenges situated in the role of creative director for an interaction design agency based in London.
His research interests are driven by the study of the evolution of applied technologies in relation to issues of identity and memory in society, past, present and future. He has been an external examiner to an array of courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate in higher education in England and Scotland and continues to work in that field where time allows as a consultant. He relaxes studying cinema and history both with a bias to European cultures.
