ATLANTA – Find the light, angle from above and snap! The College of the Arts and the School of Film, Media & Theatre are pleased to announce that Moving Image Studies Ph.D. candidate Jenny Gunn is a 2018 recipient of the Provost’s Dissertation Fellowship. The fellowship supports doctoral students from across the university, as they complete their dissertations and awarded to candidates with outstanding scholarly accomplishments.
Jenny’s dissertation, Narcisscinema: Selfie Culture and the Moving Image, advances a critical media theory of the selfie. Focusing on cinema and visual culture in the age of the selfie, it elaborates a theory of narcissism as an aesthetic form.
The ten-month fellowship commences in July. Last year, another film Ph.D. student, Arzu Karaduman also received this prestigious university award.
