Dr. Kristin Dowell specializes in art of Native North America with an emphasis on Indigenous cinema and contemporary art. She is a scholar of Irish American heritage deeply committed to a research and teaching practice that centers and amplifies the work of the Indigenous filmmakers and artists with whom she has collaborated for over 20 years. Her single-author book, Sovereign Screens: Aboriginal Media on the Canadian West Coast (2013), is the first ethnographic monograph of the vibrant and dynamic Indigenous media world in Vancouver. Her research investigates the active processes through which Indigenous filmmakers and artists express and enact visual sovereignty through their on-screen aesthetics and off-screen production practices.
