Kate Rennebohm
Kate Rennebohm is a Visiting Lecture in Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard University, having recently completed her PhD in Harvard’s Film and Visual Studies program. She is currently transforming her doctoral thesis, “Re-Vision: Moving Image Media, The Self, and Ethical Thought in the 20th Century,” into a book. “Re-Vision” argues for the dramatic but un-theorized influence of cinema on ethical thinking and philosophy within the 21st century, particularly through cinema’s introduction of the concept of “reviewing,” or the experience of encountering one’s self or the world as a moving image. A regular contributor to Cinema Scope, she has also written for The Canadian Journal of Film Studies, Film & History, Offscreen and Synoptique. Kate received the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Research Grant for both her Doctorate and Masters, and has taught at MIT and Suffolk University. In 2015, she co-founded the Society for Cinema and Media Studies’ Film Philosophy Scholarly Interest Group and served as co-chair for three years
