Summary:

Canadian film and television, and in 2001 I started offering a senior-level seminar in film authorship that concentrates on the work of Nicholas Ray and Orson Welles. I've also been considering issues of film authorship in relation to my current research for a professional biography of Phillip Borsos (1953-1995), director of The Grey Fox, One Magic Christmas, Bethune: The Making of a Hero, and several other short and feature-length films. In addition to this work on Canadian film, I've devoted attention to a couple of other areas. The new edition of Television: Critical Methods and Applications, by Jeremy Butler, includes my revised chapter, "Music Television," which uses Lauryn Hill's Everything is Everything for a sample analysis.

Summary:

My research centers around Indigenous Cinemas and television series (Americas, Australia and New Zealand), Québec cinema (migrant identities and Quebec filmmakers in Hollywood), and Road Movies from around the world. Other areas of interest include: American popular culture, Indigenous poetry, the role of letter writing and sharing in documentary and fiction films and post-memory and film. I am particularly interested in the representation of women in road movies and in the films of Quebec migrants (women filmmakers). My present research focuses more precisely on Indigenous women’s cinema in Canada, including the Inuit collective Arnait Video Productions.

Summary:

I just published (2020) A Companion to Federico Fellini (Wiley Blackwell, https://www.wiley.com/en-ca/A+Companion+to+Federico+Fellini-p-9781119431534) and Fellini’s Films and Commercials: From Postwar to Postmodern (Intellect/University of Chicago Press, https://www.intellectbooks.com/fellinis-films-and-commercials). Am preparing a Criterion Collection audio commentary for Fellini’s Il Bidone; a series of TIFF lectures on Fellini; and a keynote address for an October Fellini conference at the University of Toronto. My interests span not just Fellini and Italian cinema but film and postmodernity, ideological criticism, cultural studies, poststructuralist theory, and gender.

Summary:

I am currently the project manager of the Vulnerable Media Lab, where I work on the preservation, migration and remediation of audio-visual production in Canada, especially by marginalized communities including Indigenous peoples, women, and LGBT2Q+ people. Specifically, my research takes up queer history, community-based archives, visual culture, and the affective relationships between LGBT2Q+ people and the past. My current research project, Digital Proximities: New Archival Relationships in Online Queer Audio-Visual Space, asks how the digitization of LGBT2Q+ audio-visual archival sites can create unexpected contexts for archival media, connections between media and broad audiences, and communities amongst online archives users. Recent publications include “Curatorial Notes on Inuuqatikka: my dear relations” for Inuit Art Quarterly [forthcoming] and “Remediating the AIDS Archive: Collisions of Past and Present in Recent Activist Media” for Radical History Review[forthcoming].

Summary:

I am working on cultures of urban mobility and community, particularly those that resist petrocultures and further equity. My collaborative documentary Rodando en La Habana: bicycle stories is part of this research. Currently preparing a monograph about several global cities, I am particularly interested in how motion shapes how we continuously become in the world. My larger published works are Sun, Sex, and Socialism: Cuba in the German Imaginary and the co-edited anthologies Cultural Topographies of the New Berlin and Christa Wolf A Companion. I also developed and run an etandem platform for language learning www.LinguaeLive.ca. I did my PhD in Comparative Literature at Berkeley and was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford. At Berkeley, the Weimar film specialist Anton Kaes and Frankfurt School and Habermas expert Robert Holub were my advisors. I typically approach narrative fiction and documentary by triangulating historicization/contextualization, theory, and attention to the language of the artistic text; I would be particularly amenable to working with students who find this approach productive.
