Research Interests

My research adopts interdisciplinary and comparative approaches to the study of film. I recently completed a monograph, Regarding the Real: Cinema, Documentary, and the Visual Arts (Manchester University Press, 2015), and I have published articles on various aspects of film aesthetics, including framing, the shot, stillness,  silence, and theatricality. I currently co-edit the Cinema Aesthetics series, and continue to publish on aspects of Irish film, visual culture, and contemporary literature. I am involved in co-ordinating the British Academy funded 'Cities of Memory' research project at QUB: http://citiesofmemory.org/; and the Wellcome Trust funded 'Framing Trauma: Mental Illness and the Documentary Image': https://belfastfilmfestival.org/films/framing-trauma
