It's that time of year again!
Next week sees me deliver a paper at the annual Society for Cinema and Media Studies conference as part of a panel on Transnational Identity and Exploitation Cinema. My paper is concerned with the birthing of the "shot on video" horror film and represents early forays into a future book-length project.
The panel, organised by Ryan Rashotte, looks great, and I'm really happy to be part of it:
In June 2018 I will return to the university where I got my first academic job, De Montfort in Leicester, to deliver a keynote at the 7th annual postgraduate conference. The theme -- to mark the 200th anniversary of Frankenstein -- is "New Perspectives on Horror, Science Fiction and the Monstrous Onscreen". I can't wait for this one! I'm especially excited as I get to share keynoting duties with a good friend of mine, Dr Laura Mee (University of Hertfordshire).
I need to confirm the topic of my talk soon. Watch this space...
Steve Jones has designed a swish new site for the Media Subject Group at Northumbria that can be accessed here: http://medianorthumbria.com.
The site contains information about my colleagues' subject specialisms, research, as well as general material relating to the undergraduate and postgraduate degrees we offer at Northumbria.
Nice work, Steve!
