Areas of Expertise
Vincent Bousard's research interests concern media (cinema, literature, telephone) and cultural studies (popular cultures, reception). He is interested by both the technical and cultural aspects (social, aesthetic) of film studies, with a main focus on Francophone cultures in West Africa (Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso) and in North America (Quebec, Acadia, Louisiana). His current research deals with the audiovisual mediation of orality (speech and gesture).
Bouchard is an assistant professor of Francophone studies at Indiana University Bloomington. After a double-program within the Film Studies Department at the Sorbonne Nouvelle (Paris III) and the Comparative Literature Department at the University of Montreal, he taught in the Francophone Studies Program at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. He published a book, "Pour un cinéma léger et synchrone à Montréal!" (Septentrion University Press, 2012). He also co-directed an issue of the scientific journal Cinémas (Le bonimenteur et ses avatars, Cinémas, 2010) and the book "Dialogues du cinema" (Nota Bene, 2016).View full bio
