Dr. Ian Garwood’s research interests at the University of Glasgow include storytelling processes in the fiction film, the sensuous aspects of film narration, the film and television soundtrack, Bollywood, Classical Hollywood, American Independent Cinema and German cinema. His work combines an interest in cultural and production contexts with a dedication to close textual analysis. In 1999, Ian completed his PhD on ‘Popular Music and Characterisation in Narrative Cinema’ at the University of Warwick, supervised by Professor Richard Dyer. Since September 2000 he has been a lecturer at University of Glasgow’s School of Culture and Creative Arts, where he convenes the Sound and Moving Image Research Group, a collective interested in the study and practice of the soundtrack in different audio-visual media. Ian’s recent monograph on ‘The Sense of Film Narration’ is published by Edinburgh University Press (2013).
