Prior to joining LASALLE, Professor Knee held the post of Head of School of International Communications at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China, from 2013 to 2017. During the last eight months of that appointment, he was also a research fellow at the International Institute for Asian Studies, Leiden, the Netherlands.
He has formerly held teaching posts at the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (where he has also served as the Head of Division of Broadcast and Cinema Studies), and Ohio University, USA, and served as a Fulbright grantee at Chulalongkorn University, Thailand.
His teaching and research in recent years have focused upon contemporary Southeast Asian cinema, while he has also retained earlier interests in issues of race, gender, stardom and genre in American popular film. He serves on the editorial boards of Celebrity Studies (Routledge) and the re-launched Intensities: The Journal of Cult Media.
