My research traverses the fields of film studies and anthropology, particularly along the lines of social aesthetics, phenomenology, and the body. One piece compares how claims of "factuality" and "truth" are made in Reality TV and Mockumentary film; in another I question that categorization of films as "ethnographic," demonstrating various ways we can read all manner of film for their anthropological qualities. My work has appeared in PostScript, Journal of Film and Video, Film and Philosophy, AfterImage, and Medical Anthropology. My film projects have taken me to Ethiopia, Japan, and Ireland.
