  • About

    Mark Kligerman has been a lecturer in the department of Screen Arts & Cultures since 2004. Prior to this, he taught classes in international film at Ohio University's graduate program in World Cinema, and has lectured in film studies at Northwestern University, where he is writing his dissertation on the intersection of American road movies of the '70s and the gothic imagination.

    Mark's scholarly interests are broad, and include theories of taste and excess, the history of exploitation films, and animation. Michigan has given him the opportunity to teach 23 different courses in film and media studies (so far), allowing him to explore, develop, and share a wide body of research with exceptionally astute undergraduates.
