My research interests include early and transitional cinema (particularly the 1910s), exhibition and moviegoing culture, and lots of digital stuff. My first book, Nickelodeon City (2008), explores movie culture in Pittsburgh during the silent era. I am currently working on two books focusing on the history and practice of cinematography.
