Dudley Andrew, who was born in 1945, is the R. Selden Rose Professor of Film and Comparative Literature at Yale and the current chair of Comp Lit. He began his career with three books commenting on film theory, including the biography of André Bazin, whose thought he continues to explore in the recent What Cinema Is! and the edited volume, Opening Bazin. His interest in aesthetics and hermeneutics led to Film in the Aura of Art (1984) and his fascination with French film and culture resulted in Mists of Regret (1995) and Popular Front Paris (2005). He is currently completing Encountering World Cinema.
