Helen Richard graduated in 2019 with a BA in Film Studies and a minor in History from the University of Pittsburgh. Despite previous forays into filmmaking, she is a film analyst at heart. Her current research is focused on South Korean and Korean diaspora film and media. Of particular interest to her work is the way the horror genre and its tropes can be used to express societal concerns, along with the construction and meaning of space(s) within films. Her most recent paper, “Umma: Negotiating the Liminal Space of Diaspora,” was presented at the 2023 Asia Scholar Network Conference. In her free time, she enjoys watching hockey, cooking, and attending concerts.
