Joceline Andersen is an Assistant Teaching Professor at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, BC.  She has published several peer-reviewed articles on topics including hidden Canadian histories in Hollywood cinema, cinematic representations of technology, LGBT film festivals, and community building through online video and image sharing.

Her book Stars and Silhouettes: the History of the Cameo Role in Hollywood examines how audiences use their recognition of actors playing themselves in small roles to interact with mass entertainment while affirming their mastery of celebrity culture. This book is now available from Wayne State University Press.

She is currently pursuing a project examining a political economy of industrial training videos in the forestry industry in BC funded by a SSHRC Insight Development Grant.


She teaches in the Communication and Visual Arts and Literatures, Languages, and Performing Arts departments at TRU.
