Eliza Steinbock (summer term 2019)
Eliza Steinbock is an assistant professor in Cultural Analysis at Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society since 2014. Steinbock's interests spread across three interdisciplinary fields: Transgender Studies, Affect Theory and formations of the Post/Human. Cutting across these preoccupations is an investigation into the politics and aesthetics of art-making (who, what, for whom, how, to what effect). How do varying frameworks of visuality shape social understandings of bodily difference?They investigate visual culture mediums like film, digital media, and photography, with a special focus on dimensions of race, gender and sexuality.
