Research Areas

Daniel Wiegand is currently not affiliated to the department.


Previously I have worked as an assistant at University of Zurich (Switzerland), in the department of film studies. My PhD thesis on the historical relationship between early cinema and tableaux vivants (living pictures) will be published as a book this fall. I also developed an online platform for the study of cinema history, mainly addressed to students on a BA level in Zurich. I was a postdoctoral researcher at Université Lumière Lyon 2 with a research fund by the Swiss National Science Foundation and I have been at Stockholm University since 2016.

Research Interests

My main areas of research are the history and theory of early cinema and early sound film. I am especially interested in the history of film aesthetics, the development of film style, and the historical discourse on film, including early film theory.
