Jerod Ra’Del Hollyfield earned his PhD from Louisiana State University in May 2011.  He earned a Master’s in English in 2007 and a B.S. in Journalism and Electronic Media in 2005 from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. His research led him to pursue his current book project, “Framing Empire: Victorian Literature, Hollywood International, and Postcolonial Film Adaptation,” which combines his interests in literature, film, and postcolonial theory.  Previously, Jerod taught English and digital media at LSU and UT. His work has been published in Atlantikos, CineAction, Film International, and the recently released collection World Cinema and the Visual Arts. When not teaching and working on academic projects, Jerod writes for The Noisy Philistine (, a film and media blog devoted to discussions of digital technology in the globalized world. He also makes films largely set in Appalachia and on the Gulf Coast.
