About Annie Berke

I am the Film Editor at the Los Angeles Review of Books and the author of Their Own Best Creations: Women Writers in Postwar Television, forthcoming from the University of California Press (January 2022). My work on subjects ranging from women in comedy to contemporary documentary have been published in outlets including Senses of Cinema, Literary Hub, Ms., and the Historical Journal of Film, Radio, and Television. In 2016, I earned my PhD in American Studies and Film & Media Studies from Yale University, and from 2016 to 2019, taught Film Studies at Hollins University. As a graduate student and a professor, I organized conference proceedings, served on post-screening panels, and delivered lectures geared to an undergraduate population.
