Dr Corey Kai Nelson Schultz is Lecturer in the Film department at the University of Southampton.

I was appointed Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Film Studies at the University of Southampton in 2014.  Previously, I taught at Goldsmiths (University of London), London College of Communication (University of the Arts London), and the University of California at Berkeley.  I became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in 2012.

I have a PhD from Goldsmiths, and a MA in Asian Studies (China Concentration) from UC Berkeley. I have also studied at Fudan University (Shanghai) and Tsinghua University (Beijing). My areas of research are contemporary Chinese visual culture and film phenomenology. In 2016, I received a Small Research Grant funded by the British Academy, the Leverhulme Trust and the Sir Ernest Cassel Trust for my project "Sites of Commemoration: Contemporary Chinese Commemorative Museums and Affective Experience." In August of that year, I travelled to China to conduct fieldwork at selected commemorative sites and, during this trip, developed an interest in aspects of film tourism (my profile photo was taken in the cockpit in the airplane featured in Jia Zhangke's The World (2004)). In addition to this project, I am also exploring representations of Jews and Jewishness in contemporary China. I am a member of the Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish / Non-Jewish Relations.

I have supervised a PhD dissertation in Chinese Animation, and am currently supervising dissertations on Chinese and Korean cinemas and video games.

At the SUSU Academic Awards 2017, I received the “Highly Commended: Most Engaging Lecturer” award for Humanities.
