Cecilia Cornejo is a professor of Cinema and Media Studies and a recipient of the 2020 McKnight Fellowship for Community-Engaged Artists. Through various documentary film projects and her most recent multidisciplinary, multimedia project The Wandering House, Cecilia examines notions of belonging and the immigrant experience while exploring the traces of historical trauma on people and places. Carly Bell ’21 sat down with Cecilia to discuss the inspiration for her work and her plans for reciprocity as the project continues to expand in new directions.
When Professor Annette Nierobisz describes her own academic path to applied sociology—her preferred form of civic engagement—it’s always as “rather circuitous.” For many people, their paths to public scholarship are inherently so; there’s no clear way to foster what Imagining America defines as “diverse modes of creating and circulating knowledge for and with publics and communities,” which is part of what makes the field so interesting, innovative and exciting.

Beginning his talk, Dating Apps: The Art of Self-Curating and Performance, 2Fik changed the slide to a map of the world, with three points marking Paris, Morocco, and Quebec. The writing on the slide drew laughs from the audience, as it had at 2Fik’s talk the week before at the Northfield Public Library; the description accompanying each point (“Where I live now,” for Quebec) was qualified with a reflection of how others interpret 2Fik (“Where people know I’m not from”). While 2Fik presented it in a light-hearted way, grinning as he pointed to each dot in turn, the map reflected the inherently personal yet universal themes that have tied 2Fik’s three-week residency together—the concepts of the multiplicity of identity; identities that span geographic, cultural, and gendered borders; and the tensions between internal identities and external images.
