Current Research Projects
My dissertation project is concerned with practice-based film and television education programs and their development under the logic of post-Fordist production. Relevant case studies include University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), University of Southern California (USC), and New York University (NYU); Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Santa Fe Community College (SFCC), and Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC); and production programs associated with CILECT (The International Association of Film and Television Schools), such as Beijing Film Academy (BFA) and Australian Film, Television, and Radio School (AFTRS).
