Tamara is a PhD candidate in French and Francophone Studies and a fellow with Northwestern’s Program in Critical Theory. Her current research examines the instability of history and memory in post-war France’s cinematic and cultural production. She is especially interested in how filmmakers and writers use color as an aesthetic and political tool for challenging representation. Her article on Jean-Luc Godard’s use of media, comics, and politics, “Godard’s Contra-Bande: Early Comic Heroes in Pierrot le fou and Le Livre d’image” was recently published in Etudes Francophones (special issue, Spring 2020)
Originally from Macedonia, Tamara holds a B.A. in French Literature and Culture from University St. Cyril and Methodius (Skopje, Macedonia), and Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis (Nice, France), and an M.A. in French Literature and Cinema from Miami University.
