INTERNATIONAL CASE STUDIES OF NOIRISH CLASSICS
Co-edited with English colleague and film scholar Christopher Weedman, this edited scholarly collection will feature chapters that explore the ongoing usefulness of the "film noir" label through attention to less heralded films that straddle genres or are difficult to categorize. Our goal is not to expand the noir canon but to recover lost nuances and give new life to specific classical era (1940s-1960s) films from diverse nations by exploring them through a noir lens. Chapters include entries on films from Argentina, Czechoslovakia, France, Japan, Poland, Spain, Turkey, and the US. Contract under consideration with Edinburgh University Press.
