On Film History: 1945-1980, I taught c.60 students the histories of national film movements including Italian neorealism, Indian Parallel Cinema, the French New Wave, the British New Wave, the Czechoslovakian New Wave, and New Hollywood.

On Introduction to Film Studies: Contexts, I introduced c.40 students to critical and theoretical issues in film studies, including realism, cinematic ontology, genre, feminist film theory, stardom, and animation.

I have also lectured on a Screen Industries module at the University of Brighton; here I combined my professional knowledge of cinema marketing with critical and historical issues around film exhibition as an industry.
