Overview

Lisa Bode lectures in Film and Television Studies at the University of Queensland. Her research is in film history and reception, with a focus on screen performance, stardom, visual and special effects, and, more recently, the shifting concept of realism in Hollywood cinema.

She has published work on the implications of digital filmmaking technologies for screen acting and stardom, as well as research on the processes through which dead Hollywood stars are remembered, forgotten, or re-animated. She is currently completing a book on the historical intersections of screen performance with visual and special effects in Hollywood cinema, 1910s-2010s, for Rutgers University Press.

She is a founding member of the Special Interest Group in Digital Media for the Society for Cinema and Media Studies, and is on the editorial board for the journal, Celebrity Studies (Taylor and Francis).
