Welcome — you’ve reached Pam Cook’s website. I’ve been thinking, writing and teaching about moving image culture since the 1970s, and these pages are a record of my work up to the present. Since 2006 I’ve been Professor Emerita in Film at the University of Southampton.
Among other things, I write about fashion and film, history and cinema, feminism, auteur theory, national cinema, stardom and performance. Recently, I’ve branched out into making video essays, exploring their potential as a creative, critical and scholarly form. You can access details of my ongoing research projects, publications and events by navigating the menu at the top of the page.
