Blandine is happy to return as Assistant professor of Media and Culture to ASCA, where she previously received her PhD in 2015.
Her dissertation is an analysis of post-war French film and cultural criticism, which she interprets as an alternative to emerging academic methods at the time (semiotics and historiography, in particular). Her current research interests and activities are in immersive storytelling; ecopedagogy; popular education; film communities; emancipatory spectatorship; and world cinema. Blandine holds an MA in Film studies from the UvA and a BSc in Communication science from the KULeuven. She has worked as visiting scholar at Yale University and is currently Comenius fellow at The Netherlands Initiative for Education Research. As a so-called ‘big sister’, Blandine is also actively involved in one-on-one, community-based youth mentoring in Amsterdam
