My secondary area of specialization is film studies, an area that never fails to interest me. I successfully completed my doctoral exams in April 2015 and look forward to continuing my film studies. I especially enjoy studying cinematography and visual artistry, as well as intellectual and quirky comedies.
The following list includes presentations and projects related to my studies in Film Studies:
- “Filming Imagination: Cinematic Influence on Wallace Stevens.” [In Progress.]
- “Play It Again, Horatio: Olivier’s Hamlet and Film Noir.” Project completed for course in Shakespearean textual studies. This project explores Olivier’s film as fitting the traditional film noir concept.
- “Here’s Lookin’ at You, Kid: All the King’s Men and the Film Noir.” Robert Penn Warren Circle Annual Meeting in Clarksville, TN. April, 2013. Conference.
