Ariel Rogers Ph.D.
Ariel Rogers received her Ph.D. in Cinema and Media Studies from the University of Chicago and her B.A. in Film Studies and Philosophy from Columbia University. She teaches in the areas of film and media studies, including film and media theory, international film history, spectatorship, new media, American cinema, melodrama, and women in film.
Her research focuses on the relationship between the forms cinema takes (including issues of style and technology) and the types of experience it offers viewers. This interest extends to cinema's confrontation with new media as well as to the modes of spatiality and embodiment cinema has elicited historically. Her book, Cinematic Appeals: The Experience of New Movie Technologies, is forthcoming in October 2013 from Columbia University Press. She has published articles on cinematic technologies and spectatorship in Cinema Journal and Film History.
