About me

I have extensive experience teaching Film Studies, specialising in film style, genre, and classical Hollywood cinema. I am particularly interested in the interaction of economic, creative and aesthetic factors within cultures of film consumption and production. At the moment, much of my time is dedicated to developing the MA Contemporary Film Culture by building a strong partnership with Watershed and connecting to other regional film and arts organisations. My MA teaching focuses on issues around film criticism and cinephilia, from both historical and digital perspectives. 

Area of expertise

My current research focuses on Cary Grant and acting and I am also an Academic Adviser for the Cary Grant Comes Home for the Weekend Festival. I recently completed an essay on 'Screen Character and the Star Vehicle' (forthcoming) focusing on Arsenic and Old Lace (1946). The essay combines analysis of casting, screenwriting and performance as a way of thinking through the commercial processes of adaptation. My other publications include a monograph on Hollywood Romantic Comedy  (2006), essays on colour, widescreen spectacle, and CGI, and co-editing Neo-Noir (2009). I am a member of the Editorial board of Movie: A Journal of Film Criticism and the Advisory Board of Alphaville: Journal of Film and Screen Media.
