Dr. Clemence has been at Regis since 2009. He teaches writing, English literature, film studies, and a graduate seminar on Humanities in the Secondary Classroom. Dr. Clemence’s scholarly interests include 19th-century British literature, feminist/psychoanalytic film theory, and uses of irony and non-linear narrative in memoir composition.
