André Millard was born in East London and attended the University of Nottingham and the Sorbonne. After graduating from Emory University with a PhD in 1983 he was an editor of the Thomas Edison Papers in New Jersey and for CNN in Atlanta.

Dr Millard teaches several film classes at UAB, including "The American Film," "Film and the Violent Society," and "Sixties Film."

Here he is in Key Largo, Florida, with the original "African Queen," which starred in the film of the same name along with Humphrey Bogart and Kathleen Hepburn. The "African Queen" is still seaworthy and has a full compliment of gin!

Andre Millard and Amber GenauHY 106: World History and Technology

Andre Millard will be collaborating with his colleague Amber Genau of Materials Science and Engineering in developing a new core history class: “World History and Technology.” Here they are in Dr. Genau’s Solidification Lab in the School of Engineering with some of the tools and texts to bring a new perspective to world history: one focused on science and technology. Scientific advances in areas like climatology and genome sequencing have unlocked many mysteries of our past, and this class will keep students up to date in the new discoveries that are rewriting history.
