I research and teach in the broad areas of US literature, film and television. My book, Living Screens: Melodrama and Plasticity in Contemporary Film and Television (Rowman and Littlefield International) includes chapters on AMC's Mad Men, Lars von Trier's Melancholia and Todd Haynes's Mildred Pierce.
