Cinema Studies and
219 Allen Hall
I am interested in the art and industry of cinema and media. More specifically, my research and teaching focus on global Hollywood, production cultures, film form and style, and contemporary international art cinema. I am currently working on a book that investigates Hollywood’s push to create a globalized production industry from the late 1940s to the early 1960s. This study also examines the artistic choices that arose when Hollywood filmmakers confronted the challenges of foreign location shooting. This research has been supported by a number of grants, including a Fulbright Fellowship in France. I also have a background in moving-image programming and film journalism. Both of these pursuits have taken me to international film festivals, which for me remain important places to keep up with new developments in cinema and media.
