Personal profile

Research Statement

I work chiefly on comparative and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of film. A number of my research projects have been externally funded (British Academy (2013-15), Wellcome Trust (2015-16), Leverhulme Research Fellowship Scheme (2013-14), and the AHRC (2017-20)), and to date I have successfully supervised nine PhD projects, and second-supervised six. My recent publications include: Regarding the Real: Cinema, Documentary, and the Visual Arts (Manchester University Press, 2016); Post-Conflict Performance, Film and Visual Arts: Cities of Memory (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016); and 'The Politics of Observation: Documentary Film and Radical Psychiatry' (Journal of Aesthetics and Culture, 11 (1), 2019).
