Noah Tsika

Noah Tsika received his BA in Film and Television Studies from Dartmouth College, and his MA and PhD in Cinema Studies from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. He previously taught in the Film Studies Program at CUNY’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and in the Film and Media Studies and African Studies programs at Colgate University, where he was Visiting Assistant Professor and the recipient of a Torch Medal for teaching and service. He is a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post, and he has served on the jury of the NYC PictureStart Film Festival. Dr. Tsika’s research and teaching interests include Nollywood, Nigerian television, and West African documentary traditions. He has published articles on Nollywood’s star system; the exhibition history of Kajola, Nollywood’s first theatrically released science-fiction film; Nigeria’s top telecommunications provider (Globacom) and its rapid regional growth; the role of British Petroleum in documentary film production and education reform in pre- and post-independence Nigeria; and Nollywood’s cycle of “anti-biopics.” He also has published short biographies of Uche Jombo, Funke Akindele, and Peace Anyiam-Osigwe. He recently completed a book manuscript on Nollywood stardom, and is currently at work on a book project on the Cold War, corporate citizenship, and documentary cinema in West Africa, especially Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, and the Gambia.
