Overview

As an academic I have always attempted to combine my experience of working in the media industries (TV production and PR) with my passion for interdisciplinary research and scholarship. I am particularly interested in the ways in which culture impacts on media content and how in turn media impacts on culture and society. My current research project explores the history and aesthetics of Sword and Sandal shows on Television.

Together with Prof. John Lippitt from the Philosophy group I have recently organised the workshop Screening the Virtues - a 1 day workshop aimed to encourage a discussion of virtues across disciplines and we welcome participants from a range of disciplines, in particular philosophy, theology and religious studies, and film studies (Keynote: Prof Stephen Mulhall; When: 25 February 2017;Where: University of Hertfordshire,)

Out now:

  • Philosophy, Myth and Epic Cinema – Beyond Mere Illusions (2014, Rowman & Littlefield International)
