David Wall's research and teaching reflect a broad engagement with representations of race across the fields of art, film, and popular visual culture. He has published widely on a range of subjects including film, advertising, architecture, and contemporary art. His recent publications include the co-edited collection The Politics and Poetics of Black Film: Nothing But a Man (Indiana University Press 2015), "Meddling with the Subject: The Imperial Dialogics of Language, Race, and Whiteness in Uncle Tom's Cabin" in Nineteenth-Century Studies (Spring 2015), and "The Dialects of Race, Space, and Modernity in Ed Bland's The Cry of Jazz" (co-authored with Michael Martin) in Quarterly Review of Film and Video (Spring 2014). His current major research project, entitledSpace, Place, and Empire: Art, Culture, and Crisis in Post-War Britain, examines post-imperial tensions and anxieties as they are expressed through film and art of the 1950s. He is the book and film reviews editor for the international film journal Black Camera and is the associate editor of the book series Studies in the Cinema of the Black Diaspora.
