Professor Pam Cook is Emeritus Professor of Film at the University of Southampton.
I am a pioneer of Anglo-American feminist film theory and a leading exponent of gender and cinema studies. I worked at the British Film Institute for 15 years, during which time I edited The Cinema Book. I was associate editor of the leading film journal Sight and Sound from 1991 to 1994, before being appointed the UK's first Professor of European Film and Media at the University of Southampton in 1998.
Following my retirement in February 2006, I became Professor Emerita in Film at Southampton. My current research covers a wide range of subjects from fashion and film, history and cinema, feminism and auteur theory to national cinema, stardom and performance. My most recent book, Nicole Kidman, was published in 2012 as part of the BFI Film Stars series.
I have recently extended my research into videography, and my video essays can be viewed on my personal website.
