Biography

Emma Pett specialises in audience and reception studies, with a particular interest in transcultural contexts of media reception and cultural policy. Her PhD was a collaborative doctoral award with the British Board of Film Classifcation (BBFC). Emma is honorary Research Associate on the 'Cultural Memories of British Cinema-going in the 1960s' project based at University College London, and has previously worked at the Universities of Bristol and South Wales.

Emma's current research projects are focused on the transcultural reception of East Asian media, audiences of immersive media and, with Karina Aveyard, community cinema cultures.
