Dr Nadine Boljkovac
Senior Lecturer in Film
Nadine Boljkovac (PhD, Cambridge) is a Senior Lecturer in Film at Falmouth University. She is a 2018 Visiting Fellow of the Center for Transformative Media, The New School - Parsons School of Design (NYC); recipient of a University of Cologne 2018-19 Research Fellowship (Morphomata International Center for Advanced Studies); and was a University of New South Wales 2015-17 Postdoctoral Fellow (Centre for Modernism Studies in Australia); the Brown University 2012-13 Carol G. Lederer Postdoctoral Fellow (Pembroke Center for Teaching & Research on Women, Economies of Perception Seminar); a University of Edinburgh 2010 Postdoctoral Fellow (Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, IASH); and University of Aberdeen 2009-10 Film Teaching Fellow.
Boljkovac's monograph examining affect and ethics via Chris Marker and Alain Resnais, Untimely Affects: Gilles Deleuze and an Ethics of Cinema (Edinburgh University Press 2013), was reissued in paperback in 2015. A second monograph in progress, Beyond Herself: Feminist (Auto)Portraiture and the Moving Image, assesses works by international filmmakers, especially documentarians and those exploring (auto)portraiture and (self)perception. Of particular interest are sensorial inscriptions of abandonment and home, illness and mourning that yet proffer flashes of life and endless duration.
