Alex Benkhart


Class of 2011

Alex Benkhart is a member of the class of 2011 and is a Religious Studies/Asian Studies double major. Alex makes an effort to incorporate digital media into every aspect of his study, having worked independently on examinations of religious visual culture, anime heroines, and the commodification of sex in contemporary Japanese art. Alex has been working closely with Professor Kyoko Omori over the past year to create the Comparative Japanese Film Archive. He says he finds this work very rewarding and hopes to continue with the project until its completion. Alex applied for a Fulbright research grant that would take him to Japan in order to study depictions of homosexuality in Japanese popular culture. Alex’s dream is to ultimately make a documentary on the topic.
