Rielle Navitski's research interests include Latin American visual culture, silent and early sound film, and the relationship between cinema and the illustrated press. Her articles have appeared in Cinema Journal, Screen, Film History, Journal of Latin American Cultural Studies, Revista de Estudios Hispánicos and a number of edited collections. Her book Public Spectacles of Violence: Sensational Cinema and Journalism in Early Twentieth-Century Mexico and Brazil (Duke University Press, 2017) examines how early films and the illustrated press in the two nations staged spectacles of violence that were framed as signs of local modernity. Dr. Navitski is the co-editor (with Nicolas Poppe) of Cosmopolitan Film Cultures in Latin America, 1896-1960, an anthology of critical essays and primary texts in English translation (Indiana University Press, 2017). She is currently conducting research for a book-length project tentatively entitled Transatlantic Film Culture Between Latin America and France, 1945-1965.
