Research expertise

I specialize in moving images, and my research creates a dialogue between the analysis of how identity differences are represented (sex/gender, sexuality, race and class) and transnational means of audiovisual production, diffusion and reception. For many years now, I have been contributing to feminist studies of moving images, with a specific interest in genre cinema (costume film and film noir) and screen violence. I am also interested in practices for audiovisual representation and self-representation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer individuals in Anglo-American and Francophone contexts. Finally, in a new project relating to the field of globalization and communication, I am studying a transnational network of Burmese journalists contributing to the democratization of Burma.
