My research and teaching interests include Francophone African literature and film, literary and film theory, and postcolonial studies. My book, From Split to Screened Selves: French and Francophone Autobiography in the Third Person, was published in 2006 by Stanford University Press, and my articles have appeared in New Literary History, French Cultural Studies, and Quarterly Review of Film and Video. I recently spent time in Burkina Faso, Senegal, and France, attending FESPACO and continuing work on a second book-length project, a history of documentary filmmaking in Sub-Saharan Africa from the colonial period to the present entitled "Reclaiming Realism: From Colonial to Contemporary Documentary in West and Central Africa."
