Roxanne Panchasi is an Associate Professor at Simon Fraser University. Her first book, Future Tense: The Culture of Anticipation in France Between the Wars (Cornell, 2009), examined representations of the future and the futuristic between 1918 and 1939. She has also published articles on experimental and documentary film and history. Recently, her research has focused on the cultural politics of the "French" bomb after 1945, including the history and legacies of France's nuclear weapons detonations in Algeria and French Polynesia from the early 1960s to the mid-1990s. She is also the host of the New Books in French Studies podcast.
