I've added a new page to the blog called "Papers". While it doesn't have much to it at the moment, I'll be updating it periodically with pieces I've written for courses, conferences and publications. I'm interested in making them available to a larger audience/community, so that others might make use of them, give me suggestions and additional resources, and otherwise engage in greater dialogue about media. To kick things off, I'd like to share an analysis of the use of audio exaggeration in Raising Arizona (1987), directed by the Coen Brothers, that I wrote for my film theory course this semester. The downloadable link to the PDF of the essay can be found on the new Papers page.
