His other teaching and research interests include race, gender and sexuality in the Americas; hemispheric studies; science fiction and comic books; realism and violence in contemporary Brazilian cinema.

He has also taught expository writing at Harvard University, where the Derek Bok Center has recognized him for the last four year with a Certificate of Teaching Excellence.
