Personal profile


  • My work moves between a number of disciplinary locations, spanning both film theory and cultural studies. I have a special interest in media seriality – film and TV remakes, sequels and trilogies – and have authored and edited books on each of these topics: Transnational Television Remakes (co-edited with Claire Perkins, 2016), Film Remakes, Adaptations and Fan Productions(co-edited with Kathleen Loock, 2012), Film Trilogies (co-edited with Claire Perkins, 2012), Second Takes: Critical Approaches to the Film Sequel (co-edited with Carolyn Jess-Cooke, 2010), and Film Remakes (2006).

    Since 1996 I have taught film and television studies at Monash University, initially in the Visual Culture program and (as of 2007) in a dedicated Film and Television Studies program (now Film and Screen Studies in the School of Media, Film and Journalism).

    I have published widely in the areas of film and cultural studies, and my essays and reviews have appeared in edited collections, and journals such as AntithesisAustralian StudiesContinuum, FrameworkFilm CriticismFilm StudiesHitchcock AnnualMedia International AustraliaSenses of Cinema, Studies in Australasian Cinema, and Studies in Documentary Film.

    Over the past decade, I worked with co-investigators Noel King and Deane Williams on an Australian Research Council, Discovery Project that looked at the development of Australian Film Theory and Criticism in the decade long period 1975–85. The outcomes include a three volume set: Australian Film Theory and Criticism: Vol 1. Critical Positions (2013),  Vol. 2. Interviews(2014), and Vol. 3. Documents (forthcoming).

    My recent and current projects include: US Independent Film After 1989: Possible Films(co-edited with Claire Perkins, 2015), Transnational Television Remakes (co-edited with Claire Perkins, 2016), Australian International Pictures (co-authored with Adrian Danks, forthcoming), and Transnational Film Remakes (co-edited with Iain Robert Smith, forthcoming).

    In 2014, I was Visiting Fellow at John-F.-Kennedy-Institut für Nordamerikastudien, Freie Universität Berlin, where I previewed work from a New Millennial Remakes research project (in preparation).
