Research Interests

Ian is a leading exponent of academic audiovisual film and television criticism, and his practice and critical reflection has been published in a number of online forums. He has also published widely on issues to do with the soundtrack in film and television, on the sensuous aspects of storytelling in film, on Bollywood, American Independent Cinema and New German Cinema. He is currently combining his interest in the role of supporting actors and characters in film with his exploration of audiovisual research formats. He is also investigating the function of sound in the audiovisual essay and its proximate forms. Ian’s Vimeo page, which contains his audiovisual research, can be found here.

Biography

In 1999, Ian completed his PhD on ‘Popular Music and Characterisation in Narrative Cinema’ at University of Warwick, under the supervision of Professor Richard Dyer. He joined University of Glasgow in 2000, and was made Senior Lecturer in 2014. He is the author of two monographs, ‘The Pop Song in Film’ (2006) and ‘The Sense of Film Narration’ (2013).


Grants

  • 2013 – AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Partnership with British Library, to support research based on the personal archive of the film music director, Muir Mathieson
  • 2010 – Carnegie Trust Grant to support research at the Lux experimental film archive, London

Supervision

    Ian is particularly interested in supervising projects that involve some form of audiovisual film and television criticism, notwithstanding the particular area of enquiry. In addition, he welcomes applications from students investigating the role of supporting actors or characters, sound in screen media, storytelling processes in the fiction film, American Independent Cinema, Hollywood, German Cinema, or any project that explores the aesthetic details of screen media. He is an experienced supervisor who has guided a number of PhDs to successful completion. In addition, he has supported his supervisees, during their studies and afterwards, in acquiring experience that has allowed them to successfully enter their desired fields of employment.

    Ian has supervised successfully completed PhD projects on topics such as:

    • Sound in lo-fi digital cinema
    • The visual music film
    • The aesthetics of ‘badfilm’
    • The diary film
    • Masculinity in the American serial killer film
    • Violence in the Italian filone
    • Innovation in contemporary American sitcoms
    • Horner, Richard
      Uncanny Aesthetics; An overview of 21st Century Southern Gothic Media

His specialist option courses have included Multi-Strand Narratives in Film and Television, New German Cinema, Pop Music in Film, Film and Television Sound, Hollywood in the 30s, American Independent Cinema and Audio-Visual Film and Television Criticism. He has made a large contribution to the development and delivery of the Level One courses, ‘Looking, Listening, Reading’ and ‘Key Moments in the Development of Cinema and Television’ and has also designed and convened the Honours production courses. Ian is particularly proactive in exploring interactive modes of teaching and in using technology to support learning. In 2015, his Honours course, Audio-Visual Film and Television Criticism, was put forward by the university for Innovation Technology Excellence category at the inaugural Herald Higher Education Awards.
