Pam Hirsch

University Lecturer in English Literature; Film History and Theory

I convene the Film, Culture and Identity course in the Faculty of Education taken by students studying English and Drama. I am especially interested in films representing childhood and adolescence, and also in films about war and revolution. I am interested also in films made by women directors.
