Areas of expertise My research interests circulate broadly around cinema, fantasy and modernity. I am currently completing a monograph on the relationships between early French cinema, American cinema from the 1910s and 1920s, and fairy tales. This reflects my core research on silent cinema and on themes (and spectacles) of transformation. My interests also extend to considerations of intermediality, consumer culture and spectacle. In particular, the relationships between spectacular theatre and cinema are an emphasis of my current work. I am also interested in contemporary uses of film fantasy particularly as they relate to issues of new media and pre-cinematic technologies.
