New Book: Screening Integration: Recasting Maghrebi Immigration in Contemporary France

The book brings together established scholars in the fields of postcolonial, Francophone, and film studies to address the latest developments in this cinematic production. These authors explore the emergence of various genres that recast the sometimes fossilized idea of ethnic difference. The contributors evaluate how Maghrebi films have come to participate in, promote, and, at the same time, critique France’s integration. In the process, these essays reflect on the conditions that allowed for the burgeoning of this cinema in the first place, as well as on the social changes the films delineate.

New Book: Producing Islamic Knowledge: Transmission and Dissemination in Western Europe

Chapters examine in depth key areas relating to the production and reproduction of Islamic knowledge.

New Book: Representation and Stereotype in the Comics: Images of Near and Middle Eastern Arabs in the Franco-Belgian Bande Dessinée

Comics are serious business. The Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten showed the world exactly how much comics can effect the social landscape. This work seeks to examine the changing landscape of Europe from the medium of the comics (in French, la bande dessinée) and posits that social change has altered the face of representations of Near and Middle Eastern Peoples in Europe. As a preliminary study, this theoretical work treats the subject of stereotype as a point of departure, focusing on the fluidity of the stereotype and how it suggests more than cultural differences - it may very well signal the rise of one civilization and the fall of another.
