In an episode of a British TV series Black Mirror called “Crocodile, set some time in a near future, memories, both human and nonhuman, become recordable and viewable on a simple, portable device. This unassuming gadget seals the future of the protagonist—a murderer—who, while eliminating all human witnesses to her crime, forgets the nonhuman witness, a guinea pig, whose memory the police is then able to view to promptly identify the suspect. In the 2017 Blade Runner, androids have childhood memories that they know to be fake, implanted by the manufacturer. In turn, cli fi and environmentalist writers inscribe elements, such as water, air, soil, or dust, as memory devices, creating nonhuman archives for posterity.

“Refugee and immigrant are very different. A refugee is someone ejected from his or her past, who has no future, whose present is totally empty of meaning. In a refugee camp, you live outside of time – you don’t know when you’re going to eat, let alone when you’re going to get out of there. And you’re also outside of space because the camp is a no man’s land. To be a human being you have to be part of something. The first time we got an official piece of paper from Canada, my whole family stared at it – until then, we were stateless, part of nothing.”

In today’s global society, understanding different cultures as we interact and construct our beliefs and identities has never been more important. As educators, our responsibility to guide students in developing critical thinking in their consumption of visual media is crucial to their ability to appreciate different perspectives. While teachers may recognize intuitively the power of film to expose students to other languages and cultures, examining the benefits of using it to develop students’ creativity and analytical skills can help maximize its effectiveness in the classroom.

The term “transnational” is frequently used in academic discourse but rarely investigated at length. Operating at a liminal space between national and global, transnational scholarship investigates the connections tying works of far-flung regions using a comparative framework. Yet as scholars of comparative literature, how do we theorize this framework? Does the transnational juxtapose, rather than compare? Does it strive to understand the influence of one national media on another, or does it go beyond influence?
