About Martin F. Norden

My research interests fall under the general heading of "film and society." These interests, which overlap to some extent, include the film representation of people with physical disabilities, the film/TV construction of evil, early women filmmakers and their productions, John Sayles' 1987 film Matewan, the popular-culture icon John Barrymore, and selected Disney films. My work has been published in such journals as Journal of Film and Video, Wide Angle, Film & History, Film Criticism, Leonardo: Journal of the International Society for the Arts, Sciences, and Technology, Paradoxa, Offscreen, and Millennium Film Journal and in numerous anthologies and encyclopedias. I am most decidedly a film historian, and virtually all of my scholarly work has addressed various intersections of film and society from a historical perspective.
