Erika Mijlin is a producer, writer, editor, and faculty of Media Studies at Bennington College.  She was a founding partner of the Philadelphia media production company Artifact Pictures, and has produced many short films, documentaries, and feature animation, and at least one play.  She teaches courses on media, information, and society at Bennington College, and has also taught media production and studies at The New School, Temple University, and Columbia College. She freely confesses a healthy obsession with libraries and archives and their design, and she once spent entirely too much time finding and cataloging every instance of the name Joseph Feldman in the New York Times in the 20th century.
