About Christian Long

I left academic work for the pleasures of a 9-to-5 bureaucrat's life, but I continue to publish in film studies, in particular late-20th century Hollywood, and American literature. Most of my research considers mass-audience cultural productions as horizon-setting documents. I'm interested in how movies and literature allow us not just to understand the eras from which they emerge, but also to diagnose the possible imaginings of the future. I'm a trailing spouse, which means that I left the USA behind for New Zealand and Australia for my partner's work; I've also worked (briefly, on my own bat) in Austria.
