About Eugenie Brinkema

Eugenie Brinkema’s research in film and media studies focuses on violence, affect, sexuality, aesthetics, and ethics in texts ranging from the horror film to gonzo pornography, from the body of films dubbed “New European Extremism” to the viral media forms of terrorism. Professor Brinkema’s articles have appeared in numerous anthologies and journals including AngelakiCamera ObscuraCriticismdifferencesDiscourseThe Journal of Speculative PhilosophyThe Journal of Visual CultureLITQui ParleSomatechnics, and World Picture. Her first book, The Forms of the Affects, published with Duke University Press in 2014, won honorable mention in the Modern Language Association First Book Prize. It offers a forceful corrective to the emphasis on embodiment and experience in affect theory, arguing that that attention to form, structure, and aesthetics enables a fundamental rethinking of the study of sensation. Brinkema invenst a mode of criticism that locates affects in the details of textual construction, ultimately arguing for the speculative potential of a stance of radical formalism.
