Charles Acland is Professor and Concordia University Research Chair in Communication Studies. He received a PhD in Cultural Studies from the Institute of Communications Research, University of Illinois. Charles Acland specializes on film institutions. His recent works on the material and objective conditions of film reception (emergence of video, DVD, movie channels) and the way they transform our relation to cinema, and on the history of research in communications have led him to study the emergence of film studies and to reflect on its past, present and future forms. He has received a research grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada for his work on educational use of film. In 2006 he organised, with Haidee Wasson, a conference titled "Useful Cinema" (SSHRC grant, book forthcoming).
