Daniel Herbert is a scholar of media culture with particular interests in media industries, geography, and cultural identities. His dissertation explored cinematic globalization through the lens of Hollywood remakes of foreign films. His book Videoland examines the ways that video rental stores altered movie culture from the 1970s through the 2000s. Drawing from archival research and fieldwork conducted from 2008-2012, this book provides a critical reflection upon the brick-and-mortar video industry at the moment of its disappearance. More than a simple story of an industrial rise and fall, however, this work conveys the importance of video stores to the many people who shopped and worked inside them.
