Derek Long


I am a doctoral candidate in the Film track of the Communication Arts department at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. My research focuses on media distribution and the industrial history of American cinema and broadcasting.

I am also interested in applying digital humanities, and particularly the analysis of large-scale quantitative and qualitative data sets, to industrial questions of media history. See the research and digital work pages for descriptions of my current work.

My other research interests include digital production, animation history and aesthetics, avant-garde cinema, early cinema, B-films, and cult cinema.
