So this is a short blog entry about, well my blog. Last month I started a WordPress tracking my ongoing work and research in Film and Media Studies through the Fulbright Program. For the 2016-17 academic year I am working out of the Centre for Cinema and Media Studies (CIMS) at Ghent University in Belgium. Since I am spending the year working at arguably one of the most prestigious film and media programs in the world, I'd be remiss not to share my experiences. The style of the blog is equal parts: travel diary, personal reflection, critical anaylsis of recent developments in the field, and summary of the many film-related experiences I've had while traveling Europe. This should be quite appealing to anyone interested in media studies and would like to see it through a traveler's lens.
