My newest course, Storytelling in Video Games, will debut in Fall 2021. Links to the syllabi for my current courses are available in the header.
My contact information is collected on a separate page.
I am curating a theme week for In Media Res called “Transmedia Vikings.” It will appear in August 2021.
In 2017 I published two articles on Mathieu Kassovitz’s film La Haine:
These developed from a paper, “Hip Hop Aesthetics in La Haine,” delivered at the annual conference of the Society for Cinema and Media Studies. Other recent papers include “Eyes on the Prize and the Music of Black Power” (SCMS 2016) and two on Upstream Color.
My paper “History with a Soundtrack: YouTube, Vernacular History, and Tupac Shakur” is included in the conference proceedings from the first Tupac Amaru Shakur Collection Conference. My book chapter “The Virtual Spaces of Civil Rights” appeared in volume 2 of Cinephilia in the Age of Digital Reproduction (Wallflower – Columbia UP, 2012). My article “Globalization and the U.S. Civil Rights Movement” appeared in Public Culture (23.3).
Among other assignments, I chair the university’s Information Technology Council. I am a member of Clayton State’s chapter of AAUP, the American Association of University Professors.
