Kass Banning’s research focuses on minoritarian cinema and various forms of screen alterity, to include emerging cinemas, ranging from indigenous to diasporic to queer. Complementing her research on cultural translation, she has a long-standing interest in film circulation and the co-existing analytic categories national and transnational, from perspectives that emphasize theories of mobility and governmentality. She has also published in the areas of documentary and Canadian cinema, has co-edited an anthology on Canadian women’s cinema with University of Toronto Press, and co-founded CineAction and Borderlines. Banning regularly teaches courses on world and Canadian cinemas, race, documentary, and contemporary screen theory, as well as courses on national/regional cinemas, such as British and Sub-Saharan African film. In addition, she has taught courses on horror film, authorship, film theory, and globalization.
