I teach French and Francophone 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. My essays on African film in a global context have appeared in The Global Auteur: Politics and Philosophy in 21st Century Cinema (Bloomsbury, 2016), Global Art Cinema: New Theories and Histories (Oxford, 2010), and Italian Neorealism and Global Cinema (Wayne State, 2007). I am currently at work on "Reclaiming Realism: From Documentary Film in Africa to African Documentary Film," a book-length study of documentary film in West and Central Africa based on research supported by the Fulbright Scholar Program, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the American Philosophical Society. My article on this topic, "War by Documentary," appeared in Romance Notes (55.3, 2015), and “From Ethnography to Essay: Realism, Reflexivity, and African Documentary Film” is forthcoming in A Companion to African Cinema (Wiley-Blackwell, 2018).
