Amanda Howell teaches screen studies in the School of Humanities, Languages, and Social Sciences. An expert in contemporary American cinema, television, and screen cultures, she convenes on-campus courses in Hollywood Cinema and World Cinema and OUA courses in Classic Hollywood and Auteur cinemas. Her academic publications focus on gender, genre, and screen aesthetics and are recurrently concerned with 'body' genres: action, war, horror, and the musical. Her most recent major publication is the Routledge monograph, A Different Tune: Popular Film Music and Masculinity in Action (2015), which looks at how contemporary screen representations of masculinity have combined American cinema's long-standing investment in violence-as-spectacle with similarly body-focused pleasures of contemporary youth music.
