Dr Alex Clayton


I gained my doctorate in Film Studies from the University of Kent in 2006. My first book, The Body in Hollywood Slapstick, a treatment of the philosophy of the body guided by an appreciation of physical comedy, was published by McFarland in 2007. I joined the University of Bristol as Lecturer in Screen Studies in 2008 and played a major role in updating curricula and designing and developing new programmes in Film. I became Head of Film and Television in 2013. I'm a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, serve on the editorial board of Movie: A Journal of Film Criticism and regularly act as peer reviewer for academic publishers and journals.
