Julia Keblinska

Julia Keblinska studies Chinese and East Asian film culture. She previously received a BSFS in International Economics from Georgetown University (’08) and an MA in Chinese Literature from Columbia University (’12). Julia draws on these two disciplines to examine how economic and urban reforms created new spaces and modes of experience and were represented in the films and cultural products of the Reform Era (1976-89) in China. She is also interested in a comparative study of competing late Cold War ideologies in late socialist Chinese and Eastern European cinema as well as the film cultures of anti-communist regimes in Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Southeast Asia during the 1970s and 80s.
