    About Gabor Gergely

    Gabor Gergely is a Lecturer in the School of Film and Media. His research interests are focused around questions of difference and pathology in popular film in a variety of national cinema settings. He has published a book on émigré actors in classical Hollywood (Foreign Devils, 2012). His book on Hungarian cinema and anti-Semitism in the 1930s and 40s (forthcoming 2017 with Amsterdam University Press) was written as part of a project funded under the Leverhulme Trust’s Early Career Fellowship scheme. He is currently developing a research project on foreignness and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    I am interested in supervising PhD theses on any topic related to my research specialisms, but would especially welcome proposals on questions of foreignness, migration and exclusion and their performance and representation on screen and in industry organization and regulation.
