Beth Capper is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Departments of English & Film Studies and Women's & Gender Studies at the University of Alberta from 2019-2021. She received her Ph.D. in Modern Culture & Media from Brown University in 2019. Her research is broadly concerned with the history and theory of feminist media and performance in relation to questions of labor, social movements, and the politics of aesthetics. Beth's writing has been published in Art Journal, Media Fields, Third Text, and GLQ: A Journal of Lesbian and Gay Studies. She is assistant editor (with Rebecca Schneider) of a consortium issue of TDR: The Drama Review on "Performance and Reproduction" and co-editor of a forthcoming (2021) special dossier on "The Futures of Marxism and Film & Media Studies" for Jump Cut. Beth's book project, Uncommon Reproductions: Feminism, Cinema, and the Crises of Capitalism, advances a revisionary history of labor and anti-capitalist critique in post-1970s U.S. cinema through an attention to the racial politics of social reproduction.
