I’ve taught at a number of institutions in various capacities across the United Kingdom, specialising in the fields of media and cultural studies, film studies, digital media, audio cultures and psychosocial studies. As may be evident from this, my teaching experience covers a wide remit of subjects and reflects an interdisciplinary interest in the study of cultural production and consumption in general.
More specifically, my role within the Division is to strengthen the links between the various disciplinary fields with a special emphasis in the provision of digital and social media studies. I am currently Programme Director for Digital Media.
I have published in a number of related fields, including a monograph on depth psychology and film theory ((Film After Jung: Post-Jungian Approaches to Film Theory (Hove: Routledge, 2009)) and another on the emotional work of cinema (Feeling Film: Affect and Authenticity in Popular Cinema (Hove: Routledge, 2014). More recently I published The Death of Web 2.0: Ethics, Connectivity and Recognition in the Twenty-First Century (Hove: Routledge, 2019). I am also currently working on a short-form monograph for Routledge In Focus, on the Netflix drama, Black Mirror.
I am Co-Director of the RSE Research Network, Life in Data.
