KC Clemens focuses her research on Youth Culture, Children's and Young Adult Films and Literature, Global Kids, Generational Theory, Latina/o Literature, and Popular Culture. She has taught courses in film, writing, and culture at ASU since 2010. Within the First Year Seminar program, she has designed and taught a course called "Young Americans" which focuses on 100 years of youth culture and utilizes films, articles, historical documents, graphic novels, and stories.
In her free time she enjoys going to museums, aquariums, galleries, and historical sites. She is currently saving up to go to the Harry Potter Exhibition at the Warner Bros Studio in London. Formerly, she has cared for severely special needs dogs (with liver, kidney, bladder, and seizure issues), but is now taking a break. She is still part of a Global community that raises awareness about pets with chronic diseases.
