Suzanne Enzerink is an assistant professor of American Studies at the University of St. Gallen. At the time of filming, she was a PhD candidate in American Studies at Brown University. Her dissertation, Give Me Color: Fictions of Racial Ambiguity, tracks the rise of racial ambiguity as a genre in film and literature in the long American Century, from the 1920s through the 1960s. Her teaching and research interests center on race and race-making, literary and film history, and transnationalism. Enzerink has been a graduate fellow at the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity (CSREA) at Brown University and an interdisciplinary graduate fellow at the Pembroke Center for Teaching and Research on Women. For a course based on her research, “Remixing Racial Codes,” she won the 2016 Reginald D. Archambault Award for Excellence in Teaching.
Prior to pursuing her PhD at Brown University, Enzerink was a teaching fellow in the history department at Phillips Academy Andover. She holds an MA and BA in American Studies from the University of Groningen, the Netherlands.
