and sexuality studies. She is the co-editor (with Andreas Kitzmann) of Memory and Migration—multidisciplinary approaches to memory
studies (University of Toronto Press 2010), and the producer and director of a documentary, “MUM,” (2008) about the memoirs of a

have been translated into Hungarian and Polish and others published in edited collections in Sweden, Poland and the Netherlands.
Julia Creet is currently working on a genealogy of genealogy, a documentary and book project that looks at the industry behind the
“innate” need to know one’s past.
