CURRENT RESEARCH PROJECTS:
Revolutionary Films: The Cinematic History of Cycling
This new book is a cultural history of cycling in global cinema and new screen cultures, considering the cultural significance of the bicycle and the practice of cycling as, variously, leisure activity, transportation device, professional sports apparatus, consumer good, a means of creative expression and a means of protest.
Teaching Transnational Cinema: Politics and Pedagogy (Routledge - AFI Readers series).
I am working with Dr Katarzyna Marciniak (Ohio) on an edited collection of essays on the political, philosophical and methodological challenges of teaching transnational cinema. This is currently in process with a provisional publication date in Spring 2016.
