2) a semester-long program of films that you would screen (10 or so films), and in 500 words or less (bullet points if you want), tell us such things as: why these films, the themes that link some of them together (we usually do two or three in a series that have some kind of connecting theme – not necessary though), why these films might be good for Trent/Peterborough, etc.;
3) A writing sample, a kind of introduction to the film that would appear in Arthur (500 words).

I’m a recent graduate of the Cultural Studies PhD program. My research includes contemporary film, film theory, and the history of moving-image pornography. In addition to writing for Arthur, this semester I’m teaching in the Cultural Studies department (Intro to Integrated Arts) and Continuing Education (Writing Short Film Scripts). I also work at the Trend (come say hi!), among other small jobs as they come up.
