Our Cinema Journal Presents segment features Jun Okada, Associate Professor of English and Film Studies at SUNY Geneseo discussing her new book Making Asian American Film and Video: History, Institutions, Movements, as well as ongoing research. In addition, we’ve put together a segment on graduate student-run journals, including interviews with editors of InVisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture (featuring Victoria Gao, of the University of Rochester), as well as The Velvet Light Trap (featuring Caroline Leader and Derek Long of the University of Wisconsin–Madison) and Colleen Montgomery and Michael O'Brien of the University of Texas at Austin).
