Jen Heuson is a scholar, traveler, and media artist currently pursuing her Ph.D. in the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University. Her work critically engages the mediated production, consumption, and circulation of knowledge, culture, memory, and identity during travel, both real and imagined. Specifically, she is interested in exploring links between experience, sensation, and liveness or everydayness, on one hand, and media, epistemology, and politics, on the other. She has engaged these questions through traditional academic forms (conference, journal, thesis) and through various multimedia inquiries (sound ethnography, film documentary, radio and print journalism). Her award-winning films have screened internationally at venues as diverse as FLEX Fest, Big Muddy, Black Maria, and the Margaret Mead Film & Video Festival. Her forthcoming publications include a multimedia portrait of the Black Hills (Sensate Journal of Sensory Ethnography 2011) and an acoustic biography of Martin Heidegger (Contemporary Music Review 2011). Jen holds an MA in Film and Television Studies and an MA in Philosophy and Cultural Analysis from the University of Amsterdam as well as a BA in Philosophy from the University of Northern Colorado.
