Margaret C. Flinn
Film Studies Graduate Director
Associate Professor in the Department of French and Italian, Maggie Flinn (Ph.D. Harvard University, 2005) researches and teaches on French and Francophone cinemas. She is the author of The Social Architecture of French Cinema, 1929-39 (Liverpool University Press, 2014). Her current book project, tentatively titled New Limits of the Real: Arts of the Moving Image and the Politics of the Contemporary Everyday, addresses the rising value of documentary film/media and of commodified heritage or history as indices of a French national cinema in transition, under pressure from the European Union, globalization and technological change.
