Assistant Professor (Drama)

Paula Quigley is Director of Teaching and Learning (Postgraduate) and Director of the M.Phil. in Film Studies: Theory, History, Practice, at the School of Creative Arts. She has published on a wide range of topics in film studies, including the work of Sergei Eisenstein and André Bazin, the impact of psychoanalysis on film theory, and studies of the short film. In addition, she has published on issues of genre and gender in relation to American and European film and filmmakers, with a focus on iterations of the 'woman's film' in diverse cinematic and cultural contexts. Current research projects include an analysis of the ways in which aspects of film style and technique have been theorised, and the female gothic on film. Dr. Quigley welcomes inquiries from research students interested in working on film theory, film style, film performance, genre, gender, melodrama, female gothic, and aspects of Hollywood cinema and European cinema.
