Hello! Allow me to introduce myself. My Name is Francis. I was born in Chicago and raised in a combination of Tennessee, Kentucky, Minnesota, and Iowa. If you ask though, I consider my hometown to be Williamsburg, KY. (Although, technically, I lived 10 minutes outside of town next to a cow farm.)
I’m here in the UK earning my PhD in Film, Television, and Media Studies. My research is specifically about the ascription of race to animated bodies in contemporary US television animation. However, my interests extend to various corners of film and television history. Anyone looking for some classic Hollywood recommendations, feel free to stop by for a chat.
Outside of school, I really love baking and cooking. I’ve recently gotten into making my own jam! Maybe I’ll have an opportunity to share a few recipes with you all.
Anyway, I look forward to getting to know the community here at Norwich and at the 2nd Air Division Memorial Library.
