Bio

Marisa Milanese joined the Writing Program faculty in 2005 and has taught seminars on American short fiction, literary journalism, and education theory. Her seminar on documentary film (“Documentary Film: History, Theory, and Form”) broadly introduces students to the genre, and her latest course, “Global Documentary,” emphasizes cross-cultural representation and theories of ethnography. A longtime freelance journalist, Milanese has written for the Wall Street Journal, Condé Nast Traveler, Stanford, Travel and Leisure, Elle, and the San Jose Mercury News among others. In 2012, she was awarded Boston University’s Metcalf Award for Teaching Excellence.
