Elena D. Hristova

Lecturer in Film and Media, Bangor University

Dr Elena Hristova is a Lecturer in Film and Media at Bangor University, Wales, UK.

I'm a historian of U.S. media and culture. My research is at the intersection of media and communication history, critical whiteness studies, gender studies, social movements, and critical approaches to methodology. My current work examines the history of women's labour in media and communication research and it's implications for disciplinary foundations and research methodology.

My research has been published in the International Journal of Communication, and my co-edited (with Aimee-Marie Dorsten and Carol A. Stabile) collection The Ghost Reader: Recovering Women's Contributions to Media Studies is published in January 2024 by Goldsmiths Press. I used to edit Teaching Media Quarterly, an open access peer reviewed journal for the undergraduate classroom.
