Dr Jamie Sexton

Senior Lecturer

Department: Arts

My research is mostly concerned with alternative forms of film and other media, particularly cult cinema and independent cinema. Methodologically, I have approached subject areas from different angles, but I am particularly interested in looking at how films and other media forms are embedded within particular contextual frameworks, which has led me to employ historical and reception approaches on a number of occasions. I am, nevertheless, also interested in exploring other issues, such as the relations between new technologies and aesthetics.

I am currently co-editor of the book series Cultographies (http://www.cultographies.com).
