Demon debt: Paranormal Activity as recessionary post-cinematic allegory

 

Julia Leyda

I teach North American literature (20th- and 21st-century), culture, and cinema to British and American literature majors at Sophia University in Tokyo. I am working on a monograph about the financialization of domestic space and the US real estate bubble, under the working title At Home with Financialization in Recessionary US Screen Culture. Other current projects include three edited collections forthcoming or in preparation:

  • one with Diane Negra called Extreme Weather and Global Media (Routledge, 2015);
  • one with Shane Denson, Post-Cinema: Theorizing 21st-Century Film (REFRAME [http://reframe.sussex.ac.uk/about/], 2015), and
  • An Indelible Mark: Women in the Work of Todd Haynes, with Theresa Geller.

My edited volume of interviews [http://www.upress.state.ms.us/books/1660 ]
with Todd Haynes for the University Press of Mississippi's Conversations with Filmmakers series is out now.
