Drawing on conceptual frameworks which attempt to theorise the decentred nature of contemporary European culture and society, this book explores European Cinema as a creative arena within which issues of cultural identity are articulated and negotiated. The volume brings together for the first time German, British, French, Italian, Spanish, Serbian and American scholars, a substantial number of whom have themselves emigrated and work abroad as teachers and researchers. European Cinema: Inside Out is a truly cross-cultural study of the hybridic nature of contemporary Europe in relation to its colonial past and multi-cultural present. The interdisciplinary approach of this collection seeks to elucidate some of the ways in which postcolonial identities and subjectivities are articulated within European film texts and is as such addressed to readers in contemporary Film Studies as well as European Cultural Studies and Postcolonial Studies.
