About Jono Van Belle

Jono Van Belle is a postdoctoral researcher on the project Digiscreens and Senior Lecturer in the department of Media- and Communication Studies at the School of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences. She earned her joint PhD in Communication and Cinema Studies at Ghent University and Stockholm University in 2019. 



Jono’s current research is within the field of new cinema history. This field focuses on the social and cultural dimensions of cinema-going rather than films or auteurs. Her research focuses primarily on Ingmar Bergman from an audience perspective. Van Belle is currently working on a series of RJ-financed workshops titled Ingmar Bergman Out of Focus, dealing with the reception of Bergman around the world. The project is a cooperation with María Paz Peirano (Universidad de Chile, Chile) and Fernando Ramos Arenas (Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spanien). The results will be published in an edited volume forthcoming in 2024.

Previously, Jono Van Belle has worked on the project Swedish Cinema and Everyday Life: A study of cinema-going in its peak and decline, headed by Åsa Jernudd.

Van Belle is currently working as a postdoc on the project Digiscreens, together with Prof. Dr. Maria Jansson. The project focuses on identity and democracy on digital film- and TV-platforms in Europe. The project investigates distribution, reception, and representation.

Other research interests include: memory studies, audience reception studies, feminism, media policy, and emotions and affect.
