Biography:

Andrew Jones has been A.B.D. since April 2017 with a projected Ph.D. graduation in May 2019. His research and teaching focus on 20th and 21st century French history, philosophy, and cinema. His current project, “Narrating for-the-other: French and Francophone Cinema as Testimony of the Extreme” analyzes specific films in the context of the Holocaust, colonialism, and the gulag. Building on the investigation he conducted in his article, “Art and Logic: Godard’s Alphaville as Philosophy” (Studies in French Cinema 17.2 (2017): 165-181), which focused on how film engages and challenges traditional philosophic discourse, he is now extending the notion of film-philosophy to testimony in dialogue with the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas.
