Adina Bradeanu

(Literature, Language, History, and Social sciences). I manage the Romanian collection, liaise with publishers and vendors, select the titles for acquisition, advise the researchers and students working on Romania-related topics, devise and take part in various engagement programmes. Currently I am developing a project which combines linguistic research with tools and methods from Digital Humanities, based on a body of historical audio material held at the Taylor Institution Library.

Personal/research interests: I hold a passion for documentary cinema. I studied the professional culture of a documentary film studio whose production is an essential part of Romania’s audio-visual heritage (‘Alexandru Sahia’, 1950-1980) and I curated a DVD series on the production of that studio (VINTAGE SAHIA, vols. I-IV). I co-program a human rights documentary festival in Bucharest (One World Romania).
