    Blandine received her PhD in Media Studies at the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (University of Amsterdam, cum laude). Her dissertation is an analysis of André Bazin's film and cultural criticism, which she interprets as a post-war alternative to commonplace academic methods (e.g. historiography and semiotic film theory in particular). She holds a bachelor degree (BSc) in Communication Sciences at the Catholic University of Leuven (2008) and a cum laude master degree (MA) at the University of Amsterdam (2009). During the Spring semester 2013, Blandine was also visiting scholar at Yale University.

    Blandine's research interests are in media theory and criticism, in particular the significance of realism for contemporary media studies. Her current research looks at the intersection of film and education with an emphasis on post-literate / audiovisual means of communication.

    Research interests

    Media (film) theory and criticism, realism, VR & 3-D cinema, cinema and other arts (painting and poetry), media literacy, popular education.
