Martin Barker - Editorial Review Board

Professor in the Department of Theatre, Film and Television Studies
at the University of Wales Aberystwyth.

Barker has published ten books of research, most recently: (with Roger Sabin) The Lasting of the Mohicans: History of an American Myth; Ill Effects: the Media Violence Debate; Knowing Audiences: Judge Dredd, its Friends, Fans and Foes; A Haunt of Fears: The Strange History of the British Horror Comics Campaign (Studies in Popular Culture Series); Comics: Ideology, Power and the Critics (Cultural Politics); and From Antz To Titanic: Reinventing Film Analysis. He recently published the findings of a second ESRC project, on the reception of David Cronenberg’s Crash in Britain in 1996-7 (The Crash Controversy: Censorship Campaigns and Film Reception, Wallflower Press 2001, co-researched and -written with Jane Arthurs and Ramaswami Harindranath). This project was followed by an AHRB-funded project on a stage production of Crash here in Aberystwyth in 2001, which is currently being written up. His next book is an edited collection with Thomas Austin, Contemporary Hollywood Stardom (Arnold 2003).
