Staff Profile:Adam O'Brien

Name:
Dr Adam O'Brien
Job Title:
Lecturer in Film
Responsibilities:

- Website coordinator

- MA coordinator (from January 2017)

Areas of Interest:
My research is mainly focused on the relationship between film aesthetics and the material environment. I practice a form of close analysis informed by ecocritical ideas and concerns, such as location, presence, materiality and scale. My first book - Transactions With the World (Berghahn, 2016) - is an ecocritical study of New Hollywood cinema, and I have continued to work predominantly, though not exclusively, on American film. A number of my current and future research projects turn towards the subject of infrastructure, or 'built ecology', in cinema.
