Eric Freedman is an Associate Professor in the School of Communication and Multimedia Studies at Florida Atlantic University.
"Freedman's elegant new book...Transient Images is lyrically written, meditative, and palpably intelligent... Freedman attends carefully to the precise desires, pleasures, and risks that unfold in each example. The work is enriched by its strategic selection of a broad range of everyday cultural artifacts and practices, as well as by a richly interdisciplinary methodology... Significantly, the book offers a fresh take on thinking through the privileged role that networked and digital images play in relation to trauma... Freedman has provided us with a lively new methodology for understanding our images and our selves in an era of transience." Cinema Journal, Winter 2012
