Vicente Sánchez-Biosca is a Professor in Audio-visual Communication at the University of Valencia. He was a Fulbright scholar at Madison-Wisconsin and director of the journal Archivos de la Filmoteca (1992-2012). He sat as the chair of Spanish Culture and Civilization at NYU in 2013 and has been a visiting lecturer at the University of Paris 3, Paris 1, Sao Paulo, Montreal, among others. His research in the last two decades has centred on the relation between film and history in three areas: the Spanish Civil War, the Shoah and the Cambodian genocide (1975-1979). His work on the figure of the perpetrator of mass violence deals specifically with what has been called perpetrator images, that is to say, images produced by the criminals or their accomplices, as well as the migration of the images between visual media and their reappropriation for other ends.

 

Some of his books include: Cine y guerra civil española: del mito a la memoria (Alianza, 2006), Cine de historia, cine de memoria: la representación y sus límites (Cátedra, 2006), NO-DO: el tiempo y la memoria (2000) and El pasado es el destino. Propaganda y cine del bando nacional en la guerra civil (2011), both with Rafael R. Tranche (Madrid, Filmoteca España & Cátedra); Miradas criminales, ojos de víctima.
