In Other Ivory Towers
Like many faculty mem-
bers, Assistant Prof. of Screen
Arts and Cultures Daniel Her-
bert spent his summer doing
research for a book he pians
to write. But instead of doing
research in archives and on
microfilms, Herbert spent
three weeks touring indepen-
dent video rental stores across
coral America.
While originally from
Farmington Hills, Mich.,
Herbert went to the Univer-
sity of Hew Mexico to get his
undergraduate degree, which
is where he said he realized he
wanted to study film.
"I thought I was going to
be some kind of artist and
anthropologist, and thenI
thought I would take a film
class. I definitely did not want
a straight-laced career," said
Herbert. "Then from the first

ety of non-mainstream film
genres, which later influenced
his career. As an assistant
professor, Herbert focuses on
contemporary cinema.
"5 look at issues of global-
ization and I like to think a
lot about the industry as well
as aesthetics," Herbert said.

"I really like business issues,
so I'm teaching a class this
semester on the film industry.
In some ways what I do now
iso't that different than what
Idid as a video clerk- I mean
it is, but you study film, you
watch movies and you talk

Herbert, who eventually
earned his Ph.D. in Critical
Studies at the University of
Southern California, said he
was offered the option to stay
at USC for a post-doctorate
year at the same time he was
offered his position an the
University, but the decision to

students," Herbert said.
