I received my BA in English and general literature from Binghamton University.
In the last few years of my undergraduate studies, I discovered French theory. I then moved to Paris, where I had the opportunity to study with some of the theorists whose works I had discovered as an undergraduate.
I completed a DEA in the Texte, Imaginaire, Société program at the Université de Paris VIII. I then finished my studies at Emory University, where I received a PhD in French.
I have been at Laurier since 2003.
My research examines the ways that cultural artifacts of various sorts, especially narrative films, reflect or refract socio-political issues.
I am currently working on a book-length project on allegories of the end of capitalism in contemporary film.
I am willing to supervise graduate students working in the areas of arts and culture, social theory, and political economy. I am particularly keen on supervising projects that work at the intersection of these research areas.
