Alissa Wilkinson (below) is a staff writer and critic at Vox.com, where she covers film, culture, and sometimes religion, and an associate professor of English and humanities at The King's College in New York City, where she teaches courses on criticism and cultural theory.
Until September 2016, she was the critic at large at Christianity Today and regularly contributed criticism and features for a number of publications, including Rolling Stone, Vulture, RogerEbert.com, Pacific Standard, The Washington Post, The Atlantic, The Los Angeles Review of Books, Books & Culture, and others.
Her book How to Survive the Apocalypse: Zombies, Cylons, and Politics at the End of the World, co-written with Robert Joustra, was published by Eerdmans in May 2016.
Alissa regularly speaks at conferences and events across the U.S. and Europe about culture, criticism, religion, and film. This ADM Visiting Fellowship will be Alissa's first visit to Australia, and we can't wait to host her in early October!
What are ADM Visiting Fellowships? They support short-term visits by Christian women of outstanding talent who are established leaders in their field of intellectual, creative, cultural or professional endeavour. Visiting Fellows typically undertake a number of public engagement activities, such as ADM Public Lectures and ADM Master Classes, as well as meeting with our current ADM Fellows. Our inaugural Visiting Fellow in 2016 was Elizabeth Oldfield. Click here to listen to the podcast of her ADM Public Lecture.
