Noémie Oxley is an Assistant Professor in Global Communications at The American University of Paris and a researcher at the Centre de Recherche sur les Arts et Language at the EHESS (Paris). She has been teaching at AUP since 2015. Her research focuses on amateur videos shot in situations of crisis and the visual culture of war in the post 9/11 era. She received her Ph.D. in Social Anthropology at the EHESS and in Media and Communications at Goldsmiths University in London. Her dissertation examined the role of the soldier on the Iraq War battlefield through the study of videos shot by American troops posted on YouTube. As part of the National Research Agency (ANR) funded project “Violence and sortie de la Violence” (FMSH, Paris), she is currently investigating representations of counter-insurgency warfare in traditional Western media after the Iraq War, as well as amateur videos shot by different actors involved in these terrains and uploaded to social media.
