I am currently working on three books--one concerned with making sense of the cultural phenomenon of Ian Curtis and Joy Division in critical theoretical perspective, one concerned with providing a critical guide to 21st century British TV detective series, and one concerned with making sense of changes in Scottish cinema in relation to changes in Scottish history and culture, especially the dialectics of unionism and nationalism.
