Work and Research

Having completed my PhD on the political impotence of contemporary Afrikaans cinema in 2016, my current research foci follow four trajectories. Firstly, I'm continuing my investigation into the politics and ideology of contemporary Afrikaans cinema (2010-2018), which will culminate in an academic monograph. Secondly, I'm exploring public intellectualism in the arts and humanities in South Africa, which will culminate in an edited volume. Thirdly, I am interested in social media studies. Finally, I'm collaborating with postgraduate students on theatre, drama and performance studies.
