Teaching and Research:
In French and Francophone Studies, I teach courses with an emphasis on visual culture, including introductory, intermediate, and advanced French language/culture courses; film courses (French New Wave and Francophone Cinemas), and interdisciplinary courses (Diasporas; African Cinemas; Film and Place; Geographical Thought). As the co-founder and co-coordinator of the interdisciplinary program Global Studies, I co-teach Introduction to Global Studies. My research and writing focus on media cultures, predominantly film and video, of West Africa and of the global African diaspora.
