I teach French and Francophone African and Caribbean literature and film in the Department of Romance Languages at the University of Georgia. My book, From Split to Screened Selves: French and Francophone Autobiography in the Third Person, was published by Stanford University Press in 2006. My essays on African film in a global context appear in Italian Neorealism and Global Cinema (Wayne State, 2007), Global Art Cinema (Oxford, 2010), and The Global Auteur: Politics and Philosophy in 21st Century Cinema (Bloomsbury, 2016). I am currently working on a book-length study of post-independence African documentary film in relation to the history of French colonial cinema in West and Central Africa, tentatively entitled "Reclaiming Realism: From Documentary Film in Africa to African Documentary Film." My article on this topic, "War by Documentary," recently appeared in Romance Notes (55.3, 2015).
