Faculty Spotlight – Eleni Palis, PhD

Receiving her Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania in English with a concentration in Cinema and Media Studies, Palis’s work focuses on the intersections between classical and post-classical American cinema, race and gender in contemporary American cinema, adaptation, genre theory, and videographic criticism. Her first monograph, Classical Projections: The Practice and Politics of Film Quotation, theorizes a new term, “film quotation,” for the reuse of classical Hollywood film fragments within post-classical American cinema. Her work has appeared in Screen, Cinema Journal, and her most recent article, The Brand of Peele, was published in Film Quarterly.
