Writing Lab


Frances Smith


I completed a PhD in Film and Television Studies at the University of Warwick in 2013, where my thesis investigated the construction of gender and class in the Hollywood Teen Movie. I have since revised and expanded this into a monograph, Rethinking the Teen Movie: Gender, Genre and Identity to be published by Edinburgh University Press in October 2017. In addition, I co-edited a volume of original essays on director and screenwriter, Amy Heckerling, which was published by Edinburgh University Press in February 2016. I am currently working on a book on Girlhood, and an edited collection on the work of John Hughes. 

I am always open to suggestions on how you think the Writing Lab could be improved. You can usually find me in the Writing Lab itself (50 Gordon Square) or get in touch on the email address below.
