Daniel Mann is a lecturer and Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences Fellow at Queen Mary, University of London. His work examines the infrastructures underlying audio-visual media in the context of settler colonialism, civil conflict, and climate emergency.
Mann's writing appeared in journals such as Media, Culture & Society, Screen, Media+Environment, Afterimage and World Records. His first book, Occupying Habits: Everyday Media as Warfare in Israel-Palestine (Bloomsbury, 2022), asks what happens when IDF soldiers film their routine of policing in Palestine, when war is domesticated and when security permeates all domains of life in Israel-Palestine.
Mann's films have been exhibited internationally at film festivals and venues such as The Berlin Film Festival, The Rotterdam Film Festival, Cinema du Reel, The Hong Kong Film Festival, New Horizons, Sonic Acts, RIDM, EFAM and the ICA in London.
He received his PhD from the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths College, London, and held a postdoctoral position as a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the Film Studies Department, King’s College London.
