Alexandra Hidalgo portraitI’m an Assistant Professor in the Department of Writing, Rhetoric, and American Cultures at Michigan State University. My research deals with film and video production, film studies, gender, race, immigration, memoir, and cultural rhetorics. For information about my publications and the courses I’ve taught, please visit my CV.

I am a documentary filmmaker. You can learn about my filmmaking work here. My short film Teta, which tells the story about my experience nursing my youngest son for 22 months is currently on the festival circuit. I am also working on The Weeping Season, a feature documentary about my father’s disappearance in the Venezuelan Amazon and the decimation of Venezuela through two decades of a populist, nationalist regime.
