I have recently attended the 2015 Global Exploitation Cinemas conference in Lincoln where I presented a paper based on a chapter in the forthcoming collection Grindhouse: Cultural Exchange on 42nd Street and Beyond (eds. Austin Fisher and Johnny Walker, 2016). For more details, click here.
An article I wrote on abortion themes in survival horror has been published by Sexuality & Culture Journal (19:3, 2015). The article draws on case studies including Dark Corners (dir. Ray Gower, 2006), Frontier(s) (dir. Xavier Gens, 2007), The Hills Run Red (dir. Dave Parker, 2009), Inside (a L’interieur, dirs. Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, 2007), Madness (dirs. Sonny Laguna, David Liljeblad and Tommy Wiklund, 2010), Resurrection County (dir. Matt Zettell, 2008), Timber Falls (dir. Tony Giglio, 2007), and The Wreck (dir. James K. Jones, 2008).
I presented a paper based on the article at the University of Sunderland on 9th February 2015.
Zombies and Sexuality collection
The Zombies and Sexuality collection I co-edited with Shaka McGlotten is now available. The collection contains some really interesting and diverse essays, I am excited to see how it is received. The book is also available to preview on Google Books here.
