Slaveya Minkova

Ph.D. Student, Cinema Media Studies

Slaveya Minkova’s current research examines the complexities of postsocialist aesthetics within an emergent mode of media production associated with globalized film industries in South-East Europe. Her dissertation project takes the space of the film studio as one of its main objects of study, considering the relationship between studio and city, the geopolitics of international/ transnational sets, and the material conditions of digital media labor.
