Caroline Bem is an Assistant Professor in the School of Social Communication. Before joining Saint Paul, she was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Turku (Finland) and a Postdoctoral Fellow with the German-Canadian group IRTG:Diversity at Université de Montréal. Her research focuses on the materiality, ethics, and aesthetics of media forms, which she examines through close engagement with films, video games, visual artworks, as well as narrative texts. She is also invested in theorizing the emergence of recent theoretical currents, such as intermediality and the New Formalism, and in contributing to the conversation on the place and future of the humanities within the contemporary academy. Her recent publications can be found in Screen, JCMS, and CiNéMAS (forthcoming).
