Om Anna Backman Rogers

I graduated from the University of Edinburgh, UK in 2011 with a PhD in Film Studies. I previously worked at the University of Groningen, Netherlands and the University of Stockholm, Sweden.

I am the author of American Independent Cinema: Rites of Passage and The Crisis Image (Edinburgh University Press, 2015); Sofia Coppola: The Politics of Visual Pleasure (Berghahn 2018); and Still Life: Notes on Barbara Loden's 'Wanda' (1970) (Punctum Books, 2021), and Peter Weir's Picnic at Hanging Rock (BFI Classics/Bloomsbury: 2022).

I am the co-editor with Laura Mulvey of Feminisms (Amsterdam University Press, 2015) and the co-editor with Boel Ulfsdotter of Female Authorship and the Documentary Image: Theory, Practice and Aesthetics, and Female Agency and Documentary Strategies: Subjectivities, Identity, and Activism (both with Edinburgh University Press, 2018)

I am the co-founder and editor in chief, with Anna Misiak, of the online academic feminist journal MAI: FEMINISM AND VISUAL CULTURE (www.maifeminism.com)

I am currently preparing a monograph on the iconography of Lana del Rey (2024/5). I am also co-editing with Laura Mulvey a book of conversations with feminist practitioners and scholars (Bloomsbury, 2024).
