Dr. erin Shevaugn schlumpf visiting Assistant Professor of Film Studies
Erin Shevaugn Schlumpf is Visiting Assistant Professor of Film Studies at Ohio University. Her research focuses on aesthetic responses to trauma: how film and literary form are imprinted by past disasters. Her current book manuscript, Melancholy, Ambivalence, Exhaustion: National Trauma and Global Postmodernism, uses case studies from Post-Occupation France, Post-Tiananmen Square China, and Post-Apartheid South Africa to reveal a shared language of trauma, an imaginative reckoning with the past in the present. Erin Shevaugn Schlumpf's courses examine how image and text interrogate national, racial, gendered, and sexual identity politics.
