Head, School of Communication and Arts, The University of Queensland

I'm Head of the School of Communication and Arts at the University of Queensland, in Brisbane Australia. I got my BA(Hons) in Film and Literature at the University of Warwick, and my PhD at the University of East Anglia.

I'm interested in thinking and writing about how we judge and evaluate what we see on screen, particularly long form television dramas. So, let's call it an interest in the aesthetic and ethical dimensions of media. I've published books on the history of early television drama, on medical dramas, on the Western 'Deadwood', and one collection called Television Aesthetics and Style.
