Reader in Film Studies, University of Salford

I have been teaching film and media studies in higher, further and adult education for almost thirty years. My research is focused on popular cinemas from around the world and I have published on a range of film and television related topics.

I am also currently Senior Visiting Curator (Film) at HOME (www.homemcr.org), where I have curated and programmed film seasons focusing on Spanish, British, Chinese, Taiwanese and Hong Kong cinemas. I am also a founder member of the Chinese Film Forum UK (www.cffuk.org) and was a member of the board of trustees of Cornerhouse (www.cornerhouse.org) until 2015.
