Andrea Gyenge is an interdisciplinary scholar working at the intersections between philosophy, visual studies and the critical humanities. Her research focuses on themes of orality and the mouth in continental philosophy, the history and legacy of post-war French philosophy, and theories of the image in visual culture (film, photography and television). Her dissertation, "Res Oralis: Mouths of Philosophy," is a study of the mouth in modern aesthetics. She is currently working on two book projects. The first revises her doctoral research into a study of the mouth in film culture and philosophy. Her second project, co-authored with Cesare Casarino, is on HIV/AIDS documentary cinema, biopolitical philosophy and queer theory. Her essays have appeared or are forthcoming in Cultural Critique, Angelaki, New German Critique, and Free Associations. She teaches in the Department of Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature at the University of Minnesota and in the Department of Liberal Arts at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
