Nicole De Brabandere
Post-doctoral Fellow
IGSF, McGill University, 2018-2020

Nicole De Brabandere is a post-doc at IGSF and the Moving Image Research Lab. De Brabandere works at the intersection of feminist theory and media practice to foreground the ethical and poetic dimensions of perception, visibility and knowledge. Her current writing and film research reads concepts alongside media ecologies to develop and articulate technologies of errancy that both absorb normative modes of recognition (and inclusion) and deviate from them. Rather than assume a clear distinction between concept and practice, knowledge and sensibility, this research concerns how bodies and forms emerge heterogeneously and transversely, while creating new opportunities for collaborative world-making. De Brabandere has published her work in both traditional academic journals and experimental online publications, which can be found at www.nicoledebrabandere.com
