Areas of expertise I am Lecturer in Screen Studies and Head of Education in Drama. I co-direct the MA in Archaeology for Screen Media. My work investigates place and visual culture and the dialogue between fact and fiction produced by the documentary impulse. Specifically, I am interested in the ways in which the materialized traces of the past circulate through contemporary and historic screen practices. These span ethnographic and archaeological film, factual television, experimental video and social media.
