Dr Philip Kiszely


I am Lecturer in Performance and Cultural Histories. I co-founded the Punk & Post-Punk international academic journal.  Research interests include 20th century British cultural histories, film and television history, cultural heritage, performance & popular culture and popular music. I teach on a variety of cultural contexts and theory-based modules, all of which are informed by my current research. After graduating from the University of Manchester, I stayed there to hold a Temporary Lectureship in Screen Studies. In 2005, I came to the School of Performance and Cultural Industries as a Research Fellow in Drama, taking up the Lectureship in September 2009. My award-nominated monograph, Hollywood Through Private Eyes, was published in 2006.
