I’m an Associate Professor in the Division of Cinema and Media Studies at USC. I currently serve as Director of Graduate Studies. My new book, Hollywood Math and Aftermath: The Economic Image and the Digital Recession was published by Bloomsbury in August. My previous book, The Studios after the Studios: Neoclassical Hollywood, 1970–2010 was published by Stanford in 2015. I’m working on projects about audiotaping, worldbuilding, and comedy. I write periodically for lareviewofbooks.com, I tweet more frequently @jdconnor.
