Academic interests

Annie Fee is part of the Media Aesthetics research group at the University of Oslo, Department of Media and Communication. During her four-year postdoctoral research fellowship she will explore the historical emergence of photogénie as a film-theoretic discourse in 1920s France. The project aims to reconstruct the complex set of circumstances out of which photogénie emerged and came to serve as a key tool in the conceptual apparatus of cinephilia.


Before joining IMK in August 2017, Annie Fee was a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow in the History Department at University College London. She holds a PhD in Comparative Literature, Cinema & Media from the University of Washington (2015). She also gained an MA in Cinema History from Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (2012), an MA in Comparative Literature from the University of Geneva (2008) and a BA in French Studies from the University of London, Institute in Paris (2006).
