Research interests

Lisa’s research is concerned with the production and circulation of television, its broader economic and industrial frameworks, and the ways in which individual practices and institutional policies help shape the range and types of programming produced. Key areas of interest include television sitcom, global entertainment formats, and creative talent across the screen industries. She was also part of a research team examining film policy through a case study of the UK Film Council.

Lisa’s current research involves television, talent and gender, with a particular focus on diversity of talent onscreen and behind the scenes and developing talent in small nations. She is the co-author of The Television Entrepreneurs: Social Change and Public Understanding of Business (2012) and The Rise and Fall of the UK Film Council (2015).

Biography

Lisa was appointed Lecturer in Television Studies at the University of Glasgow in 2015. Prior to this she was a Research Associate at the University’s Centre for Cultural Policy Research (CCPR) where she worked on two AHRC-funded projects.

She holds a BA(Hons) in Communication and Mass Media from Glasgow Caledonian University and an MPhil in Screen Studies and PhD in Television Studies from the University of Glasgow.
