Jennifer Cazenave holds a dual Ph.D. in Film and Comparative Literature from Northwestern University and Université Paris 7-Diderot. She specializes in twentieth- and twenty-first century French and Francophone film, media, and literature, with a particular focus on documentary filmmaking, transnational cinema, trauma studies, the Anthropocene, and postcolonial Southeast Asia. Her research has appeared in Memory Studies, Cahier Textuel, and Idéas. Professor Cazenave is currently working on a book manuscript that retraces the making of Claude Lanzmann's monumental documentary Shoah through a study of the film's outtakes. In addition, she is also at work on a second project that examines the centrality of the earth as a medium for the writing of the Cambodian genocide in the cinema of Rithy Panh.
