 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
Dr. Crossons research interests include the relationship between film, visual media and sport; Irish film and
literature; and the use of digital media in healthcare. He is Acting Director of the Huston School of Film & Digital
Media (NUI Galway), and the PI for the Priority Research Area (PRA), Sport & Exercise: Attitudes and
Representations, within the Moore Institute for Research in the Humanities and Social Studies, NUI, Galway. His
research projects include an examination of the representation of sport in film, the subject of a conference and
several symposia held in the Huston School over the past seven years, and of his award-winning monograph, Sport
and Film (Routledge, 2013). He has also uncovered important depictions of sport in film, in particular of Gaelic
games, and his research has been featured in national and international media, including El País, The Sunday
Times, The Sunday Business Post, The Irish Examiner, The Irish Times, and the TV channels ITV, TG4 and RTÉ To
date he has contributed to eight documentary projects, including a forthcoming 6-part documentary series on
newsreels in Ireland to be broadcast by TG4 in mid-2017. His research in this area has also resulted in contributions
to several major collections, including the award-winning volume The Gaelic Athletic Association 1884-2009 and
Screening Irish-America: Representing Irish-America in Film and Television. In addition, he has co-edited a special
number of the peer-reviewed journal Media History on Sport and the Media in Ireland (Vol. 17, Issue 2). He also did
the research towards, and provided the liner notes for GAA Gold - All Ireland Hurling Championship Finals 1948-
1959 (Irish Film Institute, 2010) and GAA Football Gold: All-Ireland Final Highlights: 1947-1959 (Irish Film Institute,
2011), DVDs which made available rarely seen footage of hurling and football all-Ireland finals in these years.

Through collaboration with colleagues in the Sport & Exercise Research cluster, Dr. Crosson is also engaged in
research and outreach work examining the role and potential of digital media in healthcare. As part of this project,
he recently produced an information film on the extraordinary research and life-saving work of the Blood Cancer
Network Ireland (BCNI). Clinical Trials - A Patients Perspective can be viewed online at

TRANSFORMATIONS-06–2018: Inclusive and sustainable growth through cultural and creative industries and the arts

Researchers in the Huston School of Film & Digital Media and the J.E. Cairnes School of Business and Economics at NUI
Galway (Ireland) are seeking partners (and potentially a lead partner) to develop a consortium to respond to the
forthcoming Horizon 2020 call “TRANSFORMATIONS-06–2018: Inclusive and sustainable growth through cultural and
creative industries and the arts”. Our research interests include cinema, digital media, sport and taxation. We are
particularly interested in academics, institutions or organisations with interests in or involved in the creative industries
and the arts or who can contribute to the development of proposals for business models, resilient strategies and
innovative solutions to boost sustainable employment and growth in the cultural and creative industries, especially for the
self-employed and micro enterprises. Potential partners who could assess the impact of employment patterns, digitisation,
financing models, tax incentives and IPR protection across sectors and the impact of regional Smart Specialisation
Strategies would also be welcome.
