Rachel Moseley-Wood is Head of Department and Senior Lecturer. A Film Studies specialist, Dr Moseley-Wood teaches mainly Film Studies courses but occasionally delivers courses in the BA Literatures in English programme. Her research interests are primarily in Caribbean and Caribbean diaspora cinema and her book, Show Us as We Are: Place, Nation and Identity in Jamaican Film (2019), is the first scholarly monograph on Jamaican film . The book focuses on a selection of the more well-known Jamaican films, using close readings to reveal their artistry and complexity and explore how they contribute to the discourse on Jamaican identity, as seen through the lenses of place and nation. More recently, Dr Moseley-Wood has turned to historical research on Caribbean cinema. She is currently looking at the emergence of filmmaking in the Anglophone Caribbean through the work of the West Indian film units, and is exploring the operation of a colonial network of production, distribution and exhibition that facilitated the circulation of West Indian films throughout the empire and beyond. Dr Moseley-Wood has served two terms as Associate Dean, Marketing and Outreach, in the Faculty of Humanities and Education. As Head of the Department of Literatures in English, she led the working group which designed and introduced the Department’s newest programme, the BA Writing, Literature and Publishing.
