    Jen Heuson

    Profile

    Jen Heuson is a scholar, filmmaker and sound ethnographer interested in the relationships between place, travel, and sensory heritage. Her short films have screened at FLEX Fest, Big Muddy, and the Margaret Mead Film & Video Festival. She has produced sound ethnographies of New York City and South Dakota’s Black Hills and has written articles for Contemporary Music Review, Ethnoscripts, and Mediapolis. Jen earned her PhD with distinction from the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University in 2015. She co-directed the Collaborative Studio at UnionDocs Center for Documentary Art in 2017 and was a Fejos Fellow in Ethnographic Film with the Wenner-Gren Foundation in 2018.

    Jen currently teaches film at The New School. She is working on SOUNDING WESTERN, a film about Lakota aural sovereignty, and (very slowly!) writing a science-fiction novel about stone tape theory in South Dakota. When she’s not teaching, she advocates for inclusive public education in Princeton, New Jersey.
