I received my BA in English and general literature from Binghamton University, a DEA in the Texte, Imaginaire, Société program at the Université de Paris VIII, and my PhD in French at Emory University.
I was a visiting assistant professor at Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio, before coming to Laurier in 2003.
My research examines the ways that cultural artifacts of various sorts, especially narrative films, reflect or refract socio-political issues.
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.
