Major Achievements: Robert Shail has been in academia for more than twenty years. Following completion of his doctorate with Exeter University, on masculinity in 1960s British cinema, he joined the University of Wales as a lecturer in film studies. He subsequently became head of department at Lampeter and then senior lecturer at Trinity St David.

As well as extensive experience of teaching in film, media and popular culture, Robert has published widely on post-war British cinema, comic books and more recently children's media. His publications include a study of director Tony Richardson for Manchester University Press and his earlier book on Welsh actor/producer Stanley Baker was supported by an AHRC award. He was also awarded a Leverhulme Fellowship to research the history of the Children's Film Foundation. The book resulting from this will be published in 2015 by Palgrave-Macmillan/British Film Institute.

Robert heads up research development within the Northern Film School and the School of Film, Music and Performing Arts. He is always pleased to hear from prospective research students and established researchers interested in collaborative projects.
