I teach both survey courses and more specialized courses in film studies and literature. Some of the recent courses in film studies that I have taught include Film Authors: Coen Brothers, Film Theory, Film History (online and in-person), World Cinema, Film Authors: Alfred Hitchcock, and Film Authors: Hollywood Renaissance.  In the area of literature, I have taught courses including British Literature I (Anglo-Saxon to Restoration literature), British Literature II (Romantic to contemporary literature), World Literature (both ancient and contemporary), and a course centered on Shakespeare’s plays.

During summer 2019 I had the opportunity to lead a study abroad trip to the U.K. with my UNA colleague Dr. Cheryl Price. We offered two courses to our study abroad students: research methods and literary London.
