Research interests

My research can be mapped onto three main strands:

1. Film and cultural historiography, especially the socio-economic conditions for cultural production, reception and exhibition, and equally, their suppression. I am particularly interested in marginalised (even 'forgotten') texts and practices, and the politics of knowledge production (or repression).

2. Curation/programming (practice) as research. I continue to explore through the work of the Chinese Film Forum UK the creative possibilities for collaboration between academic institutions and cultural sector partners in initiating and supporting impact-driven research.

3. Fairly new area of research exploring the socio-economic histories of cinemagoing, as they intersect with the architectural histories and socio-cultural geographies of cinema buildings (including mobile and temporary cinema venues).
