Hannah Stamler


Hannah Stamler is a Ph.D. candidate in History, broadly interested in the culture, politics, and technology of 19th- and 20th-century Europe. Her dissertation looks at the cinema during interwar France (1920–40), studying the advent of amateur and small-format devices for making and distributing films. She is interested in how such technologies changed the cinematic landscape of France, opening the medium up to new groups and venues. She will also consider how they affected spectatorship and directing practices, as well as notions of collectivity and ‘imagined community.’
