About

I teach history at Concordia University and do radio at CKUT. I write, record, and tweet on surveillance, independent music, radio history, digital culture, and simultaneous film translation.

I am a member of the Radio Preservation Talks Force of the Library of Congress and the Media History Research Centre at Concordia University. I review films for PopMatters.com and CultMontreal.

In the 2016-2017 academic year, I’m teaching four courses: graphic novels as history; the history of coffee; film in history; and historical nonfiction writing workshop.

The historical nonfiction seminar is modeled on the Literary Journalism Residency at the Banff Centre, offered every July (deadline to apply in March).

The graphic novel course is inspired by Tom Devlin’s Graphic Novel Workshop, offered periodically at the Drawn and Quarterly Bookstore in Montreal.
