British Cinema Culture in the Great War (1914-1918)(Exeter Studies in Film History), by Michael Hammond (2006)
The Big Show

Research interests

My interests lie in the transnational nature of Hollywood from the silent period to the present day. This includes issues of globalisation, reception, exhibition, genre, and the migration of production personnel. I welcome PhD proposals in any of these areas.

Research projects

I am presently working on a British Academy funded project entitled The After Image of the Great War in Hollywood, 1919-1939. The overall aim of this work is the impact of the Great War on the aesthetics of Hollywood in the interwar period. Aspects of this work include the history of scriptwriting and the relationship between medical discourse on shell shock and the portrayal of veterans across genres in this period.
