Sonia Misra is an interdisciplinary film scholar and film programmer. Her current research project, Queer (Post-)Cinematic Futures: Temporality, the Digital, and the Limits of Representation, focuses on contemporary queer cinematic production to explore how queerness becomes reoriented around the shifting relationships that define our digital age.
Her writing has been published in publications such as Film Quarterly, Spectator, and Media Practice and Education. She is also co-editor of Su Friedrich: Interviews, a collection of interviews and autobiographical writings by experimental and documentary filmmaker Su Friedrich, published as part of the University Press of Mississippi's "Conversations with Filmmakers" series. Misra is also co-director and programmer of the Gleaners Film Festival, an annual, non-profit exhibition and celebration of marginal cinematic forms, subjects, and communities.
