Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests revolve around the forms and genres of popular cinema.  My first book, The Afterlife of the Hollywood Western, considered the period since the Western genre ceased to be a regular feature of mainstream American filmmaking and the implications of this changed context for what remains of the Western.  In this book, I developed some of my recurring interests, including intertextuality and rhetoric in genre movies.

I am currently developing a research project on horror movies and film criticism.  This project will extend some of the concerns from my work on Westerns (for example, rhetoric and genre) while moving more explicitly into issues of aesthetic evaluation.

I am also interested in other popular film genres, Hollywood cinema more broadly, film criticism, film music, popular music, film violence and issues relating to film censorship
