Kristi McKim teaches courses in film studies. Her teaching and research explore the ways that cinema can enrich our perception by correlating our experience of time (through clocks, calendars, bodies, histories) with environmental changes (gravity, weather, seasons) and human emotion (such as nostalgia, desire, love, melancholia). She has published on Hirokazu Kore-eda's After Life (in Camera Obscura) and Agnès Varda's Jacquot de Nantes (in Studies in French Cinema) in Fall 2008; her work also appears in Film-Philosophy and Senses of Cinema, and is forthcoming in Film Quarterly and Film International.
