About

"I am an assistant professor of film and media studies in the Department of Art and Art History. My research and teaching interests span a variety of media including film, digital media, comics, games, and serialized popular forms. I am the author of a book on Frankenstein films, Postnaturalism: Frankenstein, Film, and the Anthropotechnical Interface, and co-editor of anthologies on comics, video games, and contemporary cinema. I have published widely on film and media theory, and my videographic work has appeared in [in]Transition: Journal of Videographic Film & Moving Image Studies, in the online forum In Media Res, and in an experimental Raspberry Pi-driven “video book” titled after.video (2016). I am interested in working closely with students to help them develop their own approaches to video essays, audiovisual scholarship, and experimental media. To get an idea of the kind of work my students have done in the video essay format, take a look at the exhibit I put together in May 2017 here at Stanford: shanedenson.com/stuff/post-cinema-videographic/."
