Prof Andrew J. Webber

Professor of Modern German and Comparative Culture

Andrew J. Webber is Professor of Modern German and Comparative Culture. He has research and teaching interests in a wide range of German and comparative film, from the 1920s to the present day. A particular concern of his work is how film relates to psychoanalysis, the Gothic imagination, constructions of gender and sexuality, and the urban, and he has published essays on combinations of all of these. His books on The European Avant-Garde and Berlin in the Twentieth Century: A Cultural Topography also include substantial discussion of film in intermedial, transcultural and interdisciplinary frameworks. He is editor, with Emma Wilson, of the volume, Cities in Transition: The Moving Image and the Modern Metropolis.  His most recent screen studies publications include a set of essays on the films of contemporary Berlin School filmmaker, Christian Petzold.
