Biography

Jen Heuson is a scholar, filmmaker, and ethnographer interested in the relationships between place, travel, and sensory heritage. Her award-winning 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. She teaches film at Rutgers Filmmaking Center and The New School. She is (very slowly) writing a novella about stone tape theory in South Dakota and completing Sounding Western, a community-engagement film project about Lakota aural sovereignty. When she's not teaching, she advocates for inclusive public education and is a DJ at WPRB in Princeton, NJ.
