Rachel Moore is lecturer in International Media for the Media and Communications Department at Goldsmiths, University of London.
Her research covers early film history and theory; the historical and contemporary avant garde film aesthetics. Her interest in the cross overs between anthropology and film theory extends to film practice, as with the study of the treatment of dead bodies in film and in magical rituals. Moore is the author of Savage Theory: Cinema as Modern Magic (Duke University Press, 1999) and Nostalgia (MIT/Afterall Press 2006).
She is also a participant in the Goldsmiths Leverhulme Media Research Centre, which has produced interdisciplinary research on changing media spaces and design.
