Director of Academic Programs

My first book project, "Televising the South", examines how the South functioned as a powerful force in television production between 1950 and 1980, while examining how shifting representations of the region expose troubling national narratives about race and gender. I love television and watch everything from Pretty Little Liars to Downton Abbey, Black-ish, and Devious Maids. In my teaching I focus mostly on television history but also teach the occasional film or novel. I’ve taught classes on topics ranging from domesticity and television history to media aesthetics; teenagers in pop culture; music videos; and television and geography.
