I have published essays on drama, theatre and race studies in the following journals, books and encyclopedias: African American Review, Obsidian: Literature in the African Diaspora, American Drama, Bloom’s Modern Critical Views: August Wilson, New England Theatre Journal, Philological Review, Dictionary of Literary Biography, The Literary Encyclopedia and Contemporary Literary Criticism. Although I started out my career as an English professor, I have also taught film courses for well over a decade. While I spent some time as an administrator, teaching has always been my passion; I look forward to engaging students in conversations on contemporary and relevant topics. The interdisciplinary studies programs in the Kathwari Honors Program and the Department of Philosophy and Humanistic Studies have allowed me to draw from my varied academic interests. In addition to teaching courses for the Kathwari Honors Program (as my schedule permits), I regularly teach the following courses (most of which I have developed) in the Department of Philosophy and Humanistic Studies:
HUM 190 Social Issues in Film
HUM 290 Science and Technology in Film
HUM 291 Utopia and Dystopia
HUM 292 Science and Society
HUM 390 Interdisciplinary Approaches to the Moving Image
HUM 451 Advanced Interdisciplinary Studies
I am firmly committed to interdisciplinarity which best helps us understand the interconnected nature of our world and its complex problems.
