This is my most recent major publication. You can read more about it here.

I am currently working on two major projects: a co-authored history of the French film musical, and a co-edited collection on musical moments in film, emerging from a conference held in Salzburg in March 2018. In this collection my chapter will explore my conception of the ‘crystal-song’ in recent Hollywood films.
