Colin Tait

Dr. R. Colin Tait is the co-author of The Cinema of Steven Soderbergh: Indie Sex, Corporate Lies and Digital Videotape, published by Columbia University Press in 2013. His current project, ”Robert De Niro’s Method: Acting, Authorship and Agency in the New Hollywood (1967-1980)” is the first academic study to use the newly acquired archival resource – the Robert De Niro Papers – to reassess De Niro’s significance within the Hollywood Renaissance. His essay, “Robert De Niro’s Raging Bull: A Performance of History and a History of the Performance,” appeared in The Canadian Journal of Film Studies in 2011 and a chapter devoted to the actor’s unique partnership with Martin Scorsese will be published in A Companion to Martin Scorsese in 2014. Other publications include work on genre cycles, television, and digital film distribution. His latest work can be viewed at rcolintait.com. Currently Dr. Tait is working on a book-length study of Robert De Niro in the 1970s in addition to essays on Will Ferrell, The Simpsons, and Acting in Quality TV.
