Christian studies European and North American modernism with special interests in expanded cinema, archival (re)performance, and psychoanalytic theories and histories. He is currently at work writing a dissertation entitled "Screen Stutter: Lettrism and the Disarticulation of the Avant-Garde," which reframes the post-war Parisian avant-garde movement within modern art and cinema experiments in sound transcription, speech-language disorders, and sociopolitical systems of "disabled histories" and "colonial aphasia." Additional projects include studies on contemporary projection performance and feminist new materialism (published in MAST: The Journal of Media Art Study and Theory); queer mourning and intergenerational responsibility (published in InVisible Culture); and competing temporalities in the re-performance and parody of Hollis Frampton's Critical Mass (1971). He has held positions at Magnum Photos, David Zwirner Gallery, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Cleveland, Tranformer Station, the Visual Studies Workshop, and the Tufts University Art Galleries.
