Anthony Guneratne researches the role that film, literature, and other artistic media play in cultural interactions, as well as the interrelations of written and spoken language, images, and music. A fellow of the Folger Shakespeare Library, the American Philosophical Society, and FAU's Dorothy F. Schmidt College, he takes an interdisciplinary approach to teaching film and audio-visual culture. His publications include a book on Shakespeare, Film Studies, and the Visual Cultures of Modernity and the edited anthologies Rethinking Third Cinema and Shakespeare and Genre, as well as articles and book chapters on the literature and films of postcoloniality and about contemporary interpretations of history and of Renaissance culture. His forthcoming work examines performance histories from Shakespeare's time to the present and the work of archives in the preservation and transmission of cultural forms. He is a filmmaker and concert recitalist (baritone), as well as an organizer of exhibitions and film retrospectives.
