Research Interests

My current research focus on transcultural interactions in film history, borderlands history, issues of cultural translation, and reception studies.

The ever-changing history of moving images provides a figurative peephole to my other research interests, which include American Studies, Spatial History, Post-Colonialism and Technophobia.

Ongoing Research

My current projects investigate the transnational persona of actor Swedish American actor Warner Oland and moviegoing in 1950s Europe. I am also finalizing my first monograph for Rutgers University Press, which investigates the emergence of film culture in San Francisco’s Chinatown in the early 20th century.
