Personal profile

Research interests

I am currently working on a book project that explores 'listening spaces' in contemporary documentaries from France and the wider French-speaking world. Other research interests that dovetail with this project include sound studies, queer studies, and feminist queer theory and intersectionality. My first monograph Godard and Sound: Acoustic Innovation in the Late Films of Jean-Luc Godard was published by I.B.Tauris in 2017 and explores the relationship of sound to vision in cinema, and in turn our relationship as spectators with the audiovisual in a selection of post-1979 films by Jean-Luc Godard. I have recently published four articles about Chantal Akerman's cinema, including her installation Maniac Shadows (2013), her musical collaboration with the cellist, Sonia Wieder-Atherton, and her documentaries De l'autre côté (2002), and Sud (1999) (forthcoming in Paragraph). 

In 2014 I was awarded the Susan Hayward Prize by the Association for Studies in French Cinema, and in 2012 I was awarded the R.H. Gapper Postgraduate Essay Prize by the Society for French Studies.

Supervisory interests: I am interested in supervising PhD candidates on a range of topics in the broad areas of French and Francophone cinema and documentary film studies, encompassing any of the areas outlined above.
