CFP: Cinematic Responses to E.U Expansion (12/20/05; collection)

updated: 
Tuesday, October 11, 2005 - 9:56pm
Zoran Samardzija

Call For Contributions

Cinematic Responses to E.U. Expansion (collection)

This collection seeks to explore how various European films and filmmakers
from Western and East-Central Europe as well as the Balkan states are
responding to the expansion of the E.U. and, more broadly, European history
following the collapse of communism. The collection asks: Is there a
totalizing or even coherent image of Europe that emerges from such films?
Moreover, how do we understand such films in light of the fact that one of
the reasons cited for the Dutch and French rejection of the E.U.
constitution is resistance to further European expansion, in particular the
entry of Turkey into Europe?
