The Canada Research Chair in Cinema and Media Studies (2015-2022), whose holder is André Gaudreault, has the mission of questioning the role of technological innovation in the development of cinematic forms and practices, focusing more specifically on the two extremes of the historical continuum: the advent, at the turn of the twentieth century, of cinema, and a century later, the emergence of digital technology in the media landscape. His work is organized around three lines of research:

  1. Epistemology of techniques and technologies of cinema
  2. Identity of cinema in the light of post-media
  3. Editing and technological changes
