My main research interest lies in the interwar film history, late silent and early sound cinema, and the global 1920s and 30s. Specifically, I look at performance, especially cross-racial/ethnic performance, as the intersection of body, technology, and aesthetics that addresses historical, ideological, and philosophical problems, such as migration, economic depression, color line, and the relationship between fantasy and the real.
