Dr. Christopher Weedman is an Assistant Professor in the Department of English at Middle Tennessee State University. He teaches courses in film studies and popular culture. His scholarship on British, American, and European film history and criticism has appeared in Film International, Quarterly Review of Film and Video, and Senses of Cinema. In 2015, he contributed a book chapter on the transnational films of director Joseph Losey to the edited anthology Fifty Hollywood Directors (Routledge, edited by Yvonne Tasker and Suzanne Leonard).

His most recent publication is a career retrospective interview with Linda Yellen (one of the first female producers of made-for-television films and the recipient of an Emmy Award for the controversial 1980 Holocaust drama Playing for Time, written by Arthur Miller) in Film International. Another forthcoming article "A Dark Exilic Vision: Gothic Horror and Film Noir Pervading Joseph Losey and Harold Pinter’s The Servant" has been accepted for publication in Cinema Journal.

Dr. Weedman is currently working on a critical biography of 1960s British actress Anne Heywood. Excerpts from his personal interviews with the Golden Globe-nominated actress appeared in the film magazine Cinema Retro in January 2017.
