Nathan Abrams (Professor at Bangor University)


In addition to being a Professor in Film in the School of Music and Media, I am the Director of Impact and Engagement for the College of Arts, Humanities and Business at Bangor University. I am also the lead director for the Centre for Film, Television and Screen Studies. I co-convene the British Jewish Contemporary Cultures network. I lecture, write and broadcast widely (in English and Welsh) on UK and American popular culture, history film and intellectual culture. I co-founded Jewish Film and New Media: An International Journal and my most recent books are Eyes Wide Shut: Stanley Kubrick and the Making of His Final Film (with Robert Kolker, Oxford University Press, 2019), Stanley Kubrick: New York Jewish Intellectual (Rutgers University Press, 2018), Hidden in Plain Sight: Jews and Jewishness in British Film, Television, and Popular Culture (Northwestern University Press, 2016), and The New Jew in Film: Exploring Jewishness and Judaism in Contemporary Cinema (IB Tauris; Rutgers University Press, 2012). My most recent work focuses on legendary film director Stanley Kubrick.
