MANAGING EDITOR, THE JOURNAL OF POPULAR CULTURE

 
Before joining Michigan State University, Deborah Carmichael was the associate editor of Film & History: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Film and Television Studies. She has published on film exhibition history, Depression-era film, and documentaries.  Her ecocritical anthology on Westerns is forthcoming from the University of Utah Press with the working title of Western Film and the Environment.  Her next book will be on the topic of Regional Film Exhibition. 

 

As a result of her editorship of “The American West(s) in Film, Television, and History” (Film & History 33.1-2), she was invited as a guest of the National Museum of Australia to speak on outlaw representations in film.  Her presentation on the presidency in film at the American Historical Association conference in 2004 was included in a live C-SPAN broadcast and then rebroadcast four times during the next year.  She has chaired regional, national, and international conference areas on ecocriticism, local film exhibition, and various other film and literature topics. 

 

She believes that teaching is a special calling and has taught literature, film studies, and composition at Oklahoma State University, including a “learning community” class. You may contact her at  debcar6569@aol.com.
