I have been really lucky to be a part of a new(ish) publication: Filmurbia!: screening the suburbs, edited by David Forrest, Graeme Harper, and Jonathan Rayner and released in May this year.
It’s the third volume in their Cinema and Landscape collection, a series I have followed with avid interest during my PhD studies. Therefore, it was really exciting to be able to have my work included in this book, and I must thank Jonathan for his gentle yet rigorous reviewing and editing process! My chapter is titled “The Gritty Urban: The Australian Beach as City Periphery in Cinema” – unsurprisingly, it’s continuing my interest in the Australian beach.
