CSCL welcomes Assistant Professor Alice Lovejoy
Alice Lovejoy received her Ph.D. from Yale University's program in Film Studies and Comparative Literature in 2009. Her research interests include the relationship between cinema and the state, "marginal" and experimental forms of production, and theories of history and the public sphere. She is currently working on a book project that traces the emergence of an experimental film culture in the Czechoslovak Army film studio in the 1950s and 1960s; other current projects include a transnational study of state-administered children's film and television studios and a translation of Czech theorist Karel Teige's 1925 Film. Among her forthcoming publications are book chapters on the reception of André Bazin's film theory in Eastern Europe and on samizdat "television" in post-1968 Czechoslovakia. She is also a filmmaker, film curator, and critic, and has been a contributor and editor at Film Comment magazine since 2001.
