My dissertation is centered around open-ended experimental documentary’s potential to catalyze unique spaces for activism, with a concentration on queer, postcolonial and decolonial film, video, digital media and installation work produced beginning in the late 1980s. My more general research interests include transnational, feminist and queer documentary and avant garde cinema with an emphasis on dialogic narrative form, phenomenology, and viewer response theory.
