Having studied at the Free University of Berlin, the University of Paris III Sorbonne-Nouvelle and the University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne, Anne Dymek received her PhD in Arts (Film Studies) from the University Panthéon-Sorbonne Paris I in 2013. The greater part of her work so far has centered on the problem of perception in cinema, from a philosophical-semiotic perspective grounded in the pragmatist tradition inaugurated by C. S. Peirce. Her doctoral thesis examined cinematic images as “diagrams of perception”. Anne has acquired teaching experience in several institutions. Before coming to Harvard in 2016, she taught at the Department of Philosophy of the University of Bamberg. At Harvard, Anne’s research will investigate (inter alia) the correlations between Peirce’s Objective Idealism and German Idealist and Romanticist thinkers such as Kant, Schelling, Fichte and Hegel. She is the author of Cinéma et sémiotique : Deleuze en question (2015), in addition to a few articles on semiotics. Anne is Editor of the Book Series Signes d’Art at the French publishing house Cécile Defaut. Currently she is also editing a triple issue on “Music and Semiotics” for the Canadian journal “Recherches Sémiotiques/Semiotic Inquiry”.
