Dr Alex Clayton


My principal areas of teaching are aesthetics, comedy and the history of film style. My units often combine the practice of close textual analysis with video production exercises. Option units I regularly teach include Filmmaking Through Hitchcock, Film and TV Comedy, Film Criticism, and Screen Style and Aesthetics.

I supervise various postgraduate researchers working in areas of criticism, metacriticism, aesthetic theory, and the history of comedy. I'm happy to receive enquiries from prospective PhD students.
