Associate Editor: Dr James Rowlins

Singapore University of Technology and Design, Singapore

James Rowlins left his native England for Paris, France, where he studied for a BA (Hons) and MA specializing in French cinema. His passion for visual culture subsequently took him to Los Angeles, where he earned a doctorate at the University of Southern California, USA. In addition to exploring literature and film through a theoretical lens, as well as dabbling in filmmaking, his dissertation focused on the crossover between post-war American film noir and the French New Wave, arguing that the subversive manipulation of the Hollywood genre formula by the auteurs constitutes a political aesthetic. He has published articles on contemporary French fiction, film and existentialism, cinematic phenomenology and new perspectives on the New Wave. He has held teaching positions in Europe, America and Japan, and is currently a Lecturer in the Humanities and the Arts Department at the Singapore University of Technology and Design, Singapore established in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA. Dr Rowlins served as Editor of the IAFOR Journal of Media, Communication & Film from 2013 to 2016.

Assistant Editor: Anna Krivoruchko

University of Southern California, USA

Anna Krivoruchko received her BA in Russian specialising in literature and MA in art history in Russia. Her keen interest in both literature and visual culture naturally resulted in a “Kandidat” dissertation on ekphrasis defended in 2009 at Tver’ State University, Russia, as well as in a number of articles. Later she immersed herself in law and literature studies and is currently finishing a doctoral dissertation in the Slavic Department at the University of Southern California, USA. Once again, her research appears interdisciplinary and cross-cultural as it brings together Russian and Anglophone literature and film.
