Dr Claire Perkins

I have a background in cinema studies and critical theory, and hold a PhD from Monash University. I research in the areas of American independent and ‘indie’ film and culture, contemporary ‘quality’ television, feminist media and cultural studies, performance and stardom, eye tracking and spectatorship, and media seriality.

My monograph American Smart Cinema was published by Edinburgh UP in 2012 and my recent co-edited collections include Indie Reframed: Women’s Filmmaking and Contemporary American Independent Cinema (2016), Transnational Television Remakes (2016) and US Independent Film After 1989: Possible Films (2015).
