Terence McSweeney

Dr Terence McSweeney is a Senior Lecturer in Media Arts and Technology at Southampton Solent University where he teaches Film Studies. He has held research posts at UCL, the University of Oxford and Queen Mary University of London. He is widely recognised as one of the leading writers on contemporary American cinema and is the author of "The War on Terror and American Film: '9/11 Frames per Second'" (Edinburgh University Press, 2014), "Avengers Assemble! Critical Perspectives on the Marvel Cinematic Universe" (Wallflower, 2018), "Beyond the Frame: The Films and Film Theory of Andrei Tarkovsky (Aporetic Press, 2015), "Studying the Hurt Locker" (Auteur, 2019), and the editor of "American Cinema in the Shadow of 9/11" (Edinburgh University Press, 2016), co-editor of "Millennial Cinema: Memory in Global Film" (Wallflower, 2012) and "Through the Black Mirror: Deconstructing the Side Effects of the Digital Age" (Palgrave Macmillan, 2019). His new books are a contribution to Wallflower's Short Cuts series on the contemporary superhero film, a short monograph called "Black Panther: Interrogating a Cultural Phenomenon" and his monograph "Blowback: The Representation of the 9/11 Wars in Global Film", the first book to explore how the defining conflicts of the new millennium have been portrayed on the frames of global screens. Until now scholarly contributions to this topic have explored the depiction of these events primarily in American film and television, but in this book Terence interrogates twenty different case studies drawn from fourteen different countries, which reveals how profoundly film and television texts have been able to not only reflect how the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have been understood by the countries that produced them at the time, but also shaped how those conflicts will be remembered for the generations that follow.
