Background

Tanya Stadelmann, Lecturer of Film and Media Studies, is a filmmaker and media artist who has worked in Australia and the United States for the last 20 years. She received her M.F.A. in Media Arts Production from the University at Buffalo. Before joining William & Mary, she taught film production and cinema studies at the University at Buffalo and Point Park University in Pittsburgh. Her work has screened at Cannes Film Festival and numerous film festivals around the world. Her research is centered around environmental justice and health issues, and explores theories across disciplines such as sociology, cultural anthropology, ecocriticism, documentary, film and sound studies. Her current project, "This Creek," a documentary about residents living near a Superfund site in Western New York, explores ecocritical ideas such as slow violence, trans-corporeality and testimonial narratives as a tool for environmental justice using avant-garde and non-fictional film forms.
