Qian Zhang is from China. She received her BA in journalism and communication studies from Qingdao University. Qian has broad interests in film studies, including European cinema (esp. French cinema), experimental films and arts, horror films, psychoanalysis, animated documentary, and feminist film theories. The central concerns driving her research interests are subjectivity and identity of human persons. Outside of film studies (when?), Qian spends most of her time with her husband talking about life, watching football, and enjoying microbrews or some homemade Manhattan.
