About this item

This collection focuses on the value of the analysis and discussion of transnational films in the university classroom, and the specific pedagogical, political and conceptual challenges that are posed by this subject. Exploring films likeChildren of Men, Babel, and Slumdog Millionaire, contributors engage with issues related to immigrant identities, transnational encounters, foreignness, cosmopolitanism and citizenship, the politics of visibility, terrorism and the War on Terror, legality, and race.

Posing questions about the value of cinema in interdisciplinary academic study and the changing strategies and philosophies of teaching in the university, Marciniak and Bennett’s collection positions itself on the cutting edge of transnational film studies.
