Cinema and Migration

This panel aims to explore cinema across borders and in comparative perspective. In an age of global modernity, viewing the migrant experience from the perspective of a single national culture is restrictive. Submissions that engage with themes of exile, displacement, immigrants, emigrants, flows of migration, or people who do not fit within legitimate borders and boundaries are welcome. All theoretical, methodological, and cultural approaches to the 'border' experience are welcome. 150-300 word abstract to maria.catrickes@yale.edu by September 30, 2013

NeMLA 2014 will be held in Harrisburg April 3-6 and hosted by Susquehanna University.
