Wilkinson is a staff film critic for Vox.com and associate professor of English and humanities at the King’s College in New York City. Her talk will focus on how movies act on viewers, how viewers react back, what art does for audiences and how everyone reacts differently to art.

She has also written criticism and essays for publications such as Rolling Stone, Vulture, RogerEbert.com, the Washington Post, the Atlantic, the Los Angeles Review of Books, Christianity Today and more. She was a 2017-18 writing fellow with the Sundance Institute’s Art of Nonfiction Program.

The lecture is being presented by Caldwell University’s Department of Theology and Philosophy as part of its Sister Maura Campbell lecture series.
