Prior to returning to academia Sarah worked as an Editor and Assistant Producer for Eye Film and Television where she worked on a number of documentaries; during this time she also directed and produced a number of short films.

Sarah’s research interests focus predominantly on questions of gender, race, sexuality and class in recent British and American film and television. She is particularly interested in questions about post-feminism within a British context. Her thesis looked at the representations of masculinity in 90s British cinema and focused specifically on questions of fatherhood, new lad culture and the crisis of masculinity. She is co-editor of an anthology focusing on the British director Shane Meadows and has also written about Mike Leigh and Nick Love among others.
Sarah’s teaching encompasses both theoretical and practical aspects of film and television studies. She teaches the theory modules Gender and Genre in Contemporary Cinema, British Cinema Since the 90s and her practice teaching includes Television Studio Production and the Professional Video Production module.
