Eric S. Faden is an Assistant Professor of English and Film Studies at Bucknell University (Lewisburg, PA).
He studies early cinema and digital image technologies. His research has appeared in Strategies: The Journal of Theory, Culture and Politics, Convergence, The Journal of Film and Video plus the anthology Arret Sur Image edited by Marta Braun, Andre Gaudreault, and Francois Albera.
Professor Faden also creates film, video, and multimedia scholarship. His work--called "media stylos" (referencing Alexandre Astruc's, "La Camera Stylo")--imagines how scholarly research might appear as visual media. One of his recent films, Landscape and Memory (with Renee Gosson), is distributed by Third World Newsreel and was recently screened at Anthology Film Archives in New York City.
From 2001 - 2005, Professor Faden also served as Executive Director of The Campus Theatre, an original 1941 single-screen art deco movie theatre in downtown Lewisburg. He oversaw the theatre's restoration and specialized programming. In 2002, The Chronicle of Higher Education featured a full-page cover story on his work at the theatre. His efforts were also covered on CNN, National Public Radio, and ABC News plus articles in Box Office Magazine and numerous Associated Press wire stories.
