  • Kelly Joyner began teaching at American University in 2000. His courses have thematic links to psychology, film and photography, and history. Lately, he’s most interested in linguistics, film, and the convergence of history and film. He’s a product of the Northern Virginia suburbs where he still lives with his wife and three kids. In his non-teaching hours, he writes, plays music, and watches a lot of movies.
