Papagena Robbins

Papagena Robbins

Originally from San Francisco, California, Papagena is currently finishing up her dissertation in the Film and Moving Image Studies Doctoral program at Concordia University, where she teaches non-fiction film, writing, and film history. Her research looks to the baroque critical methodologies of recent archive-based city films to shed light on new/old uses of the moving image archive to cultivate historical consciousness as opposed to historical narrative. She also curates special programs of formally challenging documentaries for the Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival in California, and is editing two up-coming special issues of the online, peer-review, film journal, SYNOPTIQUE: one on film festival networks, and another on the moving image archive in the 21st century. In 2012, Papagena and Miskatonic co-director, Kristopher Woofter co-wrote and published, “Gothumentary: The Gothic Unsettling of Documentary’s Rhetoric of Rationality” in the Italian literary journal Textus, an experience that remains one of her most satisfying intellectual collaborations to date.
