Kriss Ravetto

Kriss Ravetto is Associate Professor of Cinema and Technocultural Studies. She is a film and media scholar whose work focuses on the problem of representing and theorizing the violence produced by nation building, ethnocentrism, and sexism in a manner that does not play into a vicious cycle where moralism, media images, and language produce their own forms of violence. She is the author of The Unmaking of Fascist Aesthetics (Minneapolis, University of Minnesota Press, 2001), and she is currently completing a new book project, Mythopoetic Cinema on the Margins of Europe. She has published articles on film, performance, installation art, and new media in Camera Obscura, Film Quarterly, Third Text, PAJ, Representations, Screen, Third Text and numerous collected volumes.
