Djoymi Baker

 

Djoymi Baker's research revolves around how concepts of genre and genre hybrids are used and received in screen media and visual culture, particularly across science fiction, the epic, children’s television, and documentary hybrids. Connecting this work is an interest in the way images of the past and the future are harnessed in popular culture texts and paratexts to reconceptualise the present.Published works include the monograph To Boldly Go: Marketing the Myth of Star Trek (2018), and the co-authored Encyclopedia of Epic Films (2014).

Her research features in books such as Millennial Mythmaking (2010), Star Trek as Myth (2010), The Age of Netflix (2017), and The New Peplum (2018). She previously worked in television news and current affairs.
