Chang-Min Yu

Chang-Min Yu is a lecturer in the Film and Media Studies program at Washington University in St. Louis. He received his PhD in Film Studies from the University of Iowa. His dissertation, titled “Corporeal Modernism: Transnational Body Cinema since 1968,” considers the body as a medium — not as mere representation in cinema — to examine the relationship between the bodies on screen and before the screen. Other work has been published in such journals as Film Criticism and Quarterly Review of Film and Video. His research interests lie in corporeal cinema, figural studies, sci-fi cinema, and contemporary Hollywood blockbusters.
