Dr Michael Goddard

Michael Goddard has published widely on Polish and international cinema and media culture as well as cultural and media theory. He recently completed a major research project, Guerrilla Networks, examining radical media ecologies in film, TV, radio and radical politics in the 1970s from a media archaeological perspective. Most recently, his research focuses on contemporary audiovisual popular culture and urban space. Between 2014 and 2017 he was a CAPES/Science without Borders Special Visiting Researcher, working with a team of researchers at Unisinos, Brazil on the project, “Cities, Creative Industries and Popular Music Scenes.” Mostly recently he co-edited two journal issues on the return of Twin Peaks for the journals Senses of Cinema and Series, and an edited collection Music/Video for Bloomsbury Press.

As Siegfried Zielinski entitled a section of his book Audiovisions, we are dealing with moving images that are increasingly “no longer cinema, no longer television” but we need all the more to understand their multiple forms and histories.
