My undergraduate teaching includes introductory courses in film analysis and film history. Upper level offerings span courses on animation, the star system, Canadian cinema, and experimental film. I have taught fourth-year seminars on film criticism and film festivals, among others. Some of the graduate-level directed reading courses I have taught include feminist television, ethnographic film, arctic cinema, and the Canadian B movie.
