Graduate Chair / Alliance Atlantis Professor
Film and Media

Dorit Naaman is a documentarist and film theorist from Jerusalem, and a professor of Film and Media and Cultural Studies at Queen’s University.  In 2016 she released an innovative interactive documentary, Jerusalem, We Are Here, offering a model for digital witnessing.  The project creates a novel platform that documentarist Liz Miller claimed “will become a ‘go to’ reference for educators working on the intersections of new media, oral history, geography and more.” Jerusalem, We Are Here was presented to live audiences thirty times, won two awards, and was written about in half a dozen languages. 

Dorit’s publications focus on Israeli and to a lesser extent Palestinian cinemas and media (primarily from post-colonialist and feminist perspectives).  Her personal webpage is: www.diadocumentary.com
