Andrew Higson


Professor Andrew Higson holds the Greg Dyke Chair in Film and Television Studies at the University of York. He was previously Professor of Film Studies at the University of East Anglia, where he taught for over 20 years.

Running through much of his work is a concern for questions of national and transnational cinema; he has written widely on British cinema, from the silent period to the present, and from contemporary drama to the heritage film.

His books include Waving the Flag: Constructing a National Cinema in Britain (1995) and English Heritage, English Cinema: The Costume Drama Since 1980 (2003; both Oxford University Press), and has edited two general surveys of British cinema history, Dissolving Views: Key Writings on British Cinema (Cassell, 1996), and British Cinema, Past and Present (co-edited with Justine Ashby; Routledge, 2000). A third edited book surveys the development of cinema in Britain in the silent period: Young and Innocent? The Cinema in Britain, 1896-1930 (UEP, 2002).

Co-edited with Richard Maltby ‘Film Europe’ and ‘Film America’: Cinema, Commerce and Cultural Exchange, 1920-1939 (UEP, 1999) was awarded the prestigious Prix Jean Mitry.
