Yasmina Price is a joint PhD student in the Departments of African American Studies and Film/Media Studies. Her work is focused on the African diaspora within the larger schema of anti-colonialist art-making. She is invested in the de-centering and un-settling methods of Black Studies, particularly as they are applied in cinema. She seeks to explore how these enmeshed practices are incarnated as spectacle, bodily fragmentation and cross-medium translation. Yasmina’s academic work is anchored in a commitment to anti-imperial and abolitionist organizing.
