Russell Meeuf

Russell Meeuf received his doctorate from the University of Oregon and specializes in research on popular media and culture. In particular, his work focuses on celebrity culture, popular cinema, masculinity studies, and disability studies. His writings have appeared in journals such as Cinema Journal, The Journal of Popular Film and Television, and Third Text, among others.

Reflecting these interests, he is the author of "John Wayne's World: Transnational Masculinity in the Fifties" (University of Texas Press, 2013). Examining John Wayne as an international star in the 1950s, the book analyzes Wayne's role in Hollywood's post-war internationalization as well as the globalization of culture and gender through popular media. He is also the co-editor (with Raphael Raphael) of "Transnational Stardom: International Celebrity in Film and Popular Culture" (Palgrave-MacMillan, 2013) a collection examining the phenomenon of transnational celebrity from the 1950s until the present.

His teaching covers a variety of issues in media studies, including semiotics and visual communication, critical and cultural studies of mass media, representations of crime and the criminal justice system in U.S. media, and the history of cinema. Among other courses in JAMM, he teaches JAMM 440: Critical Approaches to Mass Media.
