Jonathan Mack

Ph D_Student _Jonathan MackI am a PhD student researching instances of intermediality in contemporary American independent cinema.  I have presented my work both domestically at MeCCSA 2015 at Northumbria University and also internationally at The Image conference at the Free University of Berlin. 

I have also contributed to an international symposium on genre cinema of the 1980s at the Offscreen film festival in Brussels and had an article on intermediality accepted for publication in an upcoming issue of Cinema Journal.

Research Themes & Scholarly Interests

My primary interest is in the relationships between different media, specifically that which can be clearly demonstrated within instances of intermediality, but also general narrative, formal and industrial links between texts in different media types.  Linked to this I am interested in adaptation, particularly involving newer media texts such as videogames, and how narratives are adapted to suit different delivery technologies and styles.
