Research Interests

My research predominantly focuses on  television theory and criticism but also engages with other interdisciplinary areas, including memory studies, disability studies and childhood studies. My work on the relationship between television, memory and nostalgia (which included research on serial drama, the family history documentary, nostalgia television, television archives and media museums) was published as a monograph by Palgrave in 2011. Alongside a continued interest in these areas  I am currently working on a series of related projects and have specific interests in the following topics:

  • Television and discourses of care
  • Childhood, screen media and (inter)generational memory and nostalgia
  • Screen media, childhood studies and disability studies
  • The representation of dementia in television and film
  • Television and autobiography
