Country: United Kingdom
He is Reader in Film Studies at St Andrews University.
His work encompasses film, visual culture and media history, with a focus on European modernity. In both his teaching and research, he is interested in understanding the changing role that images (still and moving, analogue and digital) have played within longer histories of knowledge, selves and governmentality. His approach is highly interdisciplinary, and he is particularly drawn to objects and questions that challenge us to rethink sedimented categories (methodological, intellectual and disciplinary).
