I am a doctoral student in Media and Communication Studies since September 2019. My research interests are in media audiences, cult and niche media, cultural participation, film, and media engagement. My doctoral dissertation focuses on a number of aspects within the live cinematic events of cult cinema (e.g. The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Room, etc.). Specifically, I am trying to unpack the components of audience participation and interactions based on their taste and cultural knowledge, but also the perceptions and values of those who are working at the movie theater (e.g. ticket sellers, event organizers, marketing people). The research also deals with the question of how media spaces, or cult spaces in this case are afforded meaning by those who are involved in the screenings. I do this through a nuanced exploration of irony, camp appreciation, genre, and ultimately our modes of enjoyment.
