Professor Lucy Mazdon is Professor in Film at the University of Southampton.

I studied at the Universities of Birmingham, Grenoble and Warwick, and completed my PhD on Hollywood remakes of French cinema at Southampton in 1996. I was appointed to the post of Senior Research Fellow in the Modern Languages and Linguistics in 1996 and along with a number of colleagues set about developing our Film Studies curriculum. I am now a Professor in Film Studies.

I have published widely in the field of film and television. From 2006 to 2010 I led a 4 year AHRC funded project tracing the history of French Cinema in Britain. The results of this research are published in a book co-written with my then Research Assistant Catherine Wheatley, entitled French Cinema and Britain: Sex Art and Cinephilia (Berghahn, 2013). We also co-edited a collection of essays exploring Franco-British Cinematic Relations ( Je t'aime, moi non plus: Franco-British Cinematic Relations , Berghahn, 2010).

I teach courses on contemporary French cinema, French cinema of the 1930s and cinema and childhood.
