Faculty Bio:
Ms Smith holds a Master of Arts degree with distinction in art history from California State University Northridge. Her thesis was written about Wonder Woman, entitled "Wonder Woman: Fighting for Her Rights in Her Satin Tights."

Before teaching at CSUN, Jennifer worked as a writer for the weekly Japanese Disney magazine "Disney Dream File." She is currently a writer for and Beyond The Marquee, both prominent entertainment websites. She is also writing a behind-the-scenes book about the entertainment industry and Universal Studios in particular called "Get a Grip - 39 Years in Hollywood," as well as a book called "The Back to the Future Almanac."

Ms Smith appreciates film and television history, and collects pop culture ephemera from comic books and toys to props and costumes from Hollywood's best (and worst) productions. She admires Greek and Roman art history, as well as illustration, pulp and comic art of the 20th century. She is also fond of British Royal Academy paintings of the late 1800's, and the bawdy sketches of English caricaturist Thomas Rowlandson.

Currently the Vice President for the Art Historians of Southern California (AHSC), Ms Smith also served as President of the Art History Student Association (AHSA) at California State University Northridge for two years. Jennifer is a member of the College Art Association (CAA) and the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA).
