Tess joined CoMID in November after spending the last year as a part-time lecturer (Ekstern Lektor) at RUC. As part of the SERR research-group Tess will spend the next 3 years pursuing a Ph.D. at CoMID. Her project examines the Danish film-industry from the production-side, focusing on (re)production and negotiation of race-, whiteness-, gender- and minority-related representations. Tess will follow film-productions from the finishing stages of script-writing into the final stages of filming, tracking challenges and negotiations with regards to writing, casting, directing, acting and initial editing.
Tess holds a BA in Film- and Media studies and an MA in Media studies, both from KU. Furthermore she has lived, worked and studied (respectively) in St. Petersburg, London and New York (Columbia University - where she especially worked with race, gender and sexuality) and she has also worked in consulting (Business and Human Rights - CSR).
