Scott worked extensively in the Music Industry, both locally and internationally, before moving towards an academic career. Having previously taught at the University of Auckland and at Victoria, University of Wellington, Scott combines his continuing interests in popular culture with his love of cinema theory, critical and cultural studies.
Scott's first book - The Politics of Insects: David Cronenberg's Cinema of Confrontation - was published by Bloomsbury Press in 2011.
In 2013, Scott was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to teach and research in Washington DC. A book based on his work is due for publication in 2015.
Scott has also edited a collection of essays on extreme and unpopular music, titled Blackest Sun: Essays on Music Outside the Mainstream. This collection will be published in 2015 by McFarland.
Scott's areas of interest include Psychoanalysis, Screen Aesthetics, Axiology, Outsider Art and Music, and Popular Culture studies.
