My research focuses on the history of film and cinema in Britain, especially in the period of silent films. I am currently working on a project that maps early cinemas and cinema-going in London, before 1930. I am also finishing a monograph about film acting and would-be film stars in Britain in the 1920s, based partly on PhD research, titled Acting for the Silent Screen: Films and Aspiration between the Wars (due for publication with I.B.Tauris in 2016). My other research interests include the history of London on film and the reception of LGBT-themed films in Britain.
I teach and convene courses on the MA in Film Studies, including the core course 'Reading and Researching Films' and modules on British cinema and film exhibition. I have also taught film-related topics for the English Literature BA, the European Culture and Thought MA and the Urban Studies MSc courses.
