Teaching

After a gap of postdoctoral research posts (2013-2017) I am teaching again and loving being back in the classroom teaching film theory and history.

I believe that teaching and research should be closely related; I am enthusiastic about sharing my own research with my students and using teaching opportunities to discuss developing research output and showing students how knowledge about the field is constantly evolving.

I am happy to share course guides and reading lists – just contact me and ask!
