Nicole McClure

Reel borders: Transnational Cinema in the 21st Century
UConn will host a one-day film seminar in conjunction with the Reel

limited to how nationalism is strengthened or weakened in the face of
such globalization, literary adaptations to film, identifying a (trans)
national audience, Diasporic film, hyphenated identities and cross-
cultural production.
