The Militant Image: A Ciné-Geography 

Ros Gray, Lecturer, Critical Studies, Goldsmiths University of London

Within the context of cinematographic traditions and different liberation movements on the African continent, Ros Gray’s research focuses on revolutionary cinema and its global networks; the screen as a site of radical gathering; anti-colonial and post-colonial theory; and contemporary film and video art. Gray co-edited a special issue of Third Text entitled “The Militant Image: A Ciné-Geography” and published articles in numerous scholarly and artistic publications. She is currently working on the book The Vanguard of the World: Cinemas of the African Revolution. In addition to her teaching position at Goldsmith College, Gray is also a research tutor in the Curating Contemporary Art program at the Royal College of Art, UK.
