Bio

Professor Haggins' research explores representations of class, ethnicity, gender, race and region in American film and television. After graduating from Stanford (AB, American Studies; MA, Education), Haggins taught high school American history for several years before earning her doctorate at UCLA School of Film, Television and Digital Media. Her first book, Laughing Mad: The Black Comic Persona in Post Soul America (Rutgers University Press, 2007), won the prestigious The Katherine Singer Kovacs Book Award for outstanding book of the year from the Society for Cinema and Media Studies. Her publications include articles in Emergences, Flow, Framework and Ms. as well as essays in The Essential HBO Reader (University of Kentucky Press, 2007) and Satire TV (NYU 2009).  She is currently working on a project dealing with the cultural history of American television, identity and the American Dream.
