Associate Teaching Professor in English

Michael McCluskey’s research looks at the technological changes of the 1920s and ’30s through studies of the film and literature of the period. He is particularly interested in the intersection of the history of technology and the history of education and uses documentary, educational, and amateur film to examine the integration of new technologies and the emergence of our own networked world.

His teaching draws on his interests in technology and design and includes literature and film from the early twentieth century to today, archival sources, recent work in media studies and critical access studies, and collaborations with the Huskiana Press and local institutions.

Before coming to Northeastern, he was a Lecturer in the CAS Writing Program at Boston University, Lecturer in English at the University of York (UK), and a Fellow at metaLAB (at) Harvard. He is co-editor of Rural Modernity in Britain (Edinburgh University Press, 2018) and co-editor of Aviation in the Literature and Culture of Interwar Britain (Palgrave, 2020). He is currently working on a co-edited collection on infrastructure and a monograph on 1930s documentary film.
