My specialist research and teaching areas include US and European film history and screen culture, with a specific emphasis on more ‘alternative’ practices and modes of reception. I am particularly passionate about the role that cinema can play as a potential force for social change, and am regularly invited to present papers at conferences in the UK, US and Canada.
