Juan Carlos Kase has published in Discourse: Journal for Theoretical Studies in Media and Culture, Millennium Film Journal, and The Moving Image. In 2009, he completed his dissertation on experimental film under the direction of David E. James at the University of Southern California. He is currently completing revisions on his manuscript, “A Cinema of Anxiety: American Experimental Film in the Realm of Art (1964–76),” which considers the work of experimental filmmakers in relation to a range of confrontational strategies in art and media of the era. His ongoing research concerns the overlapping aesthetic, historical, and political registers of experimental cinema, documentary, art history, performance, and popular music within American culture.
