Staff Profile:Doug Pye

Responsibilities:

I retired from my post as Senior Lecturer in Film in 2005. I remain closely involved with the Department, and am interested in supervising postgraduate research on topics related to my research interests.

Areas of Interest:

My main research interests are in the textual analysis of narrative cinema, particularly Hollywood, and include questions of narration and point of view, authorship and popular genres. My recent work includes essays on the concept of tone in film, on Otto Preminger (co-authored with John Gibbs), on Vincente Minnelli and Max Ophuls.

Postgraduate Supervision:

I welcome enquiries from prospective postgraduate students on topics such as textual analysis of narrative film, including issues of film style and interpretation; narration and point of view; film authorship and popular Hollywood genres. I am currently supervising research on Hollywood performance, and past supervision topics include the German films of Fritz Lang, Hollywood romantic comedy, mise en scene in British post-war film criticism, and the films of Terrence Malick.
